For Plantation workers Swaraj meant the right to move freely in and out of the confined spaces and the freedom to visit their native places. As per the Inland Emigration Act of 1859 plantation workers were not permitted to leave the tea gardens without permission. In reality, they were rarely given such permission. As soon as they heard about Non Cooperation movement thousands of workers revolted against it and left the plantations heading towards their home. They believed in Gandhi’s vision of free India and removal of British Raj but destiny had something else in store for them as they never reached their destination. All the workers were stranded on the way by a railway and steamer strike; they were caught by the police and brutally beaten up.
