Another Satyagraha movement was launched in the year 1918. This movement was organised among the workers of cotton mills.


Kheda:


Gandhiji started another Satyagraha movement in Kheda in the year 1918, demanding relaxation in revenue collection. The peasants of Kheda were unable to pay the revenue due to crop failure and a plague epidemic.
