Precautionary Measures in
Gandhi and his followers are likely to be given little opportunity of break- ing the salt tax as part of their cam- paign of civil disobedience.
The Government has employed hun-
dreds of labourers who are guarded by police and are engaged in destroying the salt crystals which are lying on the seashore near Danmi the spot
where Gandhi proposes to inaugurate his campaign by gathering the salt tax without the payment of revenue.
The police and labourers are boy- cotted by the villagers in the neigh- bourhood and have to journey to a village ten miles away to procure food. Large forces of police are concentrat- ing at Julalpur where Gandhi is due to arrive in a few days.
Importance is attached to the depar- ture of the Sikhs to discuss with the Viceroy the future action of the Bom- bay Government with regard to Gandhi.
