(i)the state monopoly over salt caused great unrest among the people. It prohibited people from manufacturing salt and thus imposed high taxes. Gandhiji thus started Dandi March as salt was an indispensable item.
(ii) Salt March was notable as it was a major non-violent protest movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma chose salt as a tool to mobilize the Indian population, as it was an indispensable tool and was used in every household. The monopoly of the state over salt roused the whole nation. The army of peace was thus successful in challenging the British authorities.
(iii) The Salt March mobilized people from all walks of life. Everyone came on the street to peacefully protest against the Salt law. It was not just the Indian people but the British government also followed the path of peace and non-violence. It did not arrest anyone of them or caused any hurdle in their march. Thus, the principle of peace and non- violence widely gained acceptance.
