The following measures were taken by Gandhiji to eliminate the problem of untouchability:
1. He named the untouchables as ‘Harijan’, literally which means the children of god.
2. He himself cleaned the toilets to show that all humans are equal and the type of work one does, cannot make him or her as untouchable.
3. He undertook the Satyagraha movement with an objective that these untouchables get free and unrestricted entry into all places of the society.
Through these measures Gandhiji was successful in removing the problem of untouchability from the society to some extent.
