The Kheda peasant struggle is also known as the No-Tax peasant struggle or Kheda movement. The Peasant-Patidar community of Kheda who refused to agree to a 23% tax hike that was imposed on them despite of terrible crop failure, plague and cholera led Gandhiji to start this movement to help them stand against British’s cruel policy. The strategies that are used are
• Gandhiji and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel travelled throughout the length and breadth of the countryside and raised awareness about the rights of the farmers.
• Due to this movement, the government rejected all their demands and asked the security personnel to confiscate land, homes and cattle of the people who failed to pay their tax. As the policemen and guards stormed their cattle sheds and homes of the people - not even one person hit back but did the protest in a non-violent way until they succeed.
• The peasant donated all their available belonging to the Gujarat Sabha that was organising the Kheda Satyagraha to help them continue the movement.
• The Kheda movement was a united protest with several people involved and outstandingly disciplined thought the struggle.
Finally, as a result the Government reached to an agreement and declared that the current year and next year tax will be suspended, and all their seized property will be returned. The greatest successes of Kheda movement was that it remained non-violent until they succeed finally.
