Amit Shah flags off Dandi Cycle Yatra

To mark the 92nd anniversary of the Dandi March, Union Home Minister, Amit Shah on Saturday flagged off the ‘Dandi Cycle Yatra’.

The news: The Dandi Cycle Yatra was organized by Gujarat Vidyapeeth. Twelve cyclists would travel on the same Dandi March route to spread the message of Mahatma Gandhi.

  • Speaking at the Kochrab Ashram in Paldi area of Ahmedabad, during the flag off ceremony, Shah said, “The problem is that we diverted from the path shown by Gandhiji. PM Narendra Modi has incorporated Gandhiji’s ideals in the new education policy, such as the importance of mother tongue and national languages as well as employment-oriented education. All these Gandhian principles have been weaved into the policy by the PM.”
  • “During the salt march, Gandhiji understood the problems of common people during his night stays in villages. After understanding the issues, he came up with solutions and conveyed those solutions to the people through his speeches. Modiji talked about the same after becoming the PM,” he added.
  • Mahatma Gandhi led a group of 80 people on a 24-day march against the British salt monopoly on March 12, 1930.
  • The Dandi March, or Salt March, was the name given to this non-violent protest.
