What were the steps that Gandhi used in order to help India secure independence from Great Britain?

During the early 1900's, India was a British colony that had very little self rule. In 1919, India went through a shift in power known as the Montagu-Chelmsford Reforms. It was as a result of this that india gained alittle control over some aspects of their country. But it was Mohandas Gandhi that expanded this control they had over their country and secured independence. Mohandas Gandhi was the leader of the Indian Congress Party. He introduced a style of protest called pacifism that was a non-violent type of resistance. In 1930 this type of resistance came into act as Gandhi began the "Salt March". During this march, he walked 240 miles to get salt from the British. Although the march lasted from March 12 to April 6th, it drew support from across India and the world. As a result, Gandhi was arrested and put in jail.
