Salt March or Dandi March was an important piece of Indian History. It was a twenty four day march to show resistance against the salt law imposed by British Government. It began on March 12 and lasted till April 6 in the year 1930. The historic walk had a span of 390 Km and stretched from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi in Gujarat.
This year, the walk was re-enacted and a group of 81 people started the march on March 12 to mark, “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav”. The re-enactment was planned beforehand and the pedestrians were asked to stop at 21 designated spots. This was a move to make public events a possibility.
These events were to be used as platforms to discuss issues like economy, environment, security and cleanliness.
