Salt march was an effective tool of resistance:
1. Salt was consumed by everyone, be it rich or poor and the colonial government had monopolized its production.
2. Gandhi said it showed the colonial government’s most oppressive face so he sends the abolition of salt tax as a demand to Lord Irwin but he ignored it.
3. Gandhi launched a civil disobedience movement and thousands of people supported him. On 6 April, he manufactured salt at Dandi after walking from Sabarmati for 24 days. People broke the law in other parts of the country too.
Explanation: Salt march was a highly symbolic cause because it stirred the common man too. Gandhi got overwhelming support throughout the country.
