The Unwilling Policeman - After weeks of hard trying Gandhi has at last succeeded in his campaign to get himself arrested by the reluctant Lord Irwin. - David Low in Evening Standard, London, England, 1930.

As the Salt Satyagraha took the form of a national upsurge against British domination, the Government resorted to sterner measures to quell it. On May I, Gandhi wrote in Young India of "Goonda Raj" and said: "The duty of the people is clear. They must answer this organized hooliganism with great suffering." He informed the Viceroy in a long note that he had decided to go to Dharasana from the camp he had established at Karadi, three miles from Dandi, and "demand possession" in the name of the Indian people of the salt works there unless the salt tax and the ban on private salt making were removed. Irwin's response was to arrest him three days later.
