How did Mohandas Gandhi encourage the Indian people to resist British imperialism?
A famous instance involved the sale of salt. The British gave a company a monopoly licence for the sale of salt, and made it illegal for anyone else to supply salt. Of course the monopoly situation resulted in prices rising so high that poor Indians could scarcely afford to purchase any. Gandhi led thousands of Indians on the famous Salt March to make salt at Dandi, in defiance of the ban. In spite of arrests, this campaign was one of his most successful.
