Differing stands within the Movement

The movement in the Towns

·        The people of town mainly involved in different services and business works.

·        The population of town having sufficient money but lack of time.

·        All the people of town like business man and service person help mahatma Gandhi by funding their movement.

Swaraj in the Plantations

·        For plantation workers in Assam,Freedom meant that right to move freedly in and out of the confined space in which they were enclosed and it meant retaining a link with the village from which they had come.

·          They belived that Gandhi ji was coming and everyone would be given land in thir own villages.

·        They interpreted the term swaraj in their own ways,imagining it to be a time when all suffering and all trobles would be over.

Towards Civil Disobedience

·        In feb 1922,Mahatma Gandhi decided to withdraw the non-cooperation Movement due to Chauri chaura incidence in which several police men killed by mob.
