Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi and all those who marched with Bapu to Dandi in pursuit of justice and equality. Today, 89 years ago, Mahatma Gandhi embarked on the iconic Dandi March.
Sharing a few thoughts on the Dandi March, the ideals of Bapu and his disdain for the Congress culture in his blog, Mr Modi said, Sardar Patel played a key role in the planning of the Dandi March and planned every minute aspect of the March, down to the last detail.
Mr Modi said, the British were so scared of Sardar Patel that they arrested him a few days before the launch of Dandi March hoping it would scare Gandhi Ji. However, none of that happened and the larger cause of fighting colonialism prevailed over everything else.
The Prime Minister said, last month he was in Dandi where Bapu lifted a handful of salt. He said, a state-of-the-art museum has also come up there. He urged people to visit the place and the museum.
