This movement led to acts of vandalism and sabotage for which the government held Gandhi responsible for the acts of violence, suggesting that they were a deliberate act of Congress policy. All the prominent leaders were arrested and the Congress was banned. The army and police were brought out to suppress the movement. Netizens took to the social media platform, Twitter to remember and honour this day by lauding and praising the freedom fighters behind this movement.
