"Don't Release Me"

Again Motilal tendered resignation and walked out of the Legislative Assembly.
Mahatma Gandhistarted his famous Dandi March or Salt Satyagraha.

This march on foot to Dandi stunned the whole world. During this march Motilal and
Jawaharlal met Gandhiji on his way to a village called jambusara. They had decided to donate their house Anand Bhavan to the Congress. They had built a small cottage for themselves on the same premises. Thereafter Anand Bhavan became the property of the Congress, and was named Swaraj Bhavan.

Government arrested the supreme leader of the movement, Mahatma Gandhi. After this Motilal, Jawaharlal and other leaders were also arrested. Both the father and the son were sent to the Naini Jail. Motilal's health was seriously upset. Jawaharlal was nursing him. His condition did not improve. On the other hand, it got worse. A number of people from all over the country sent telegrams to the Viceroy requesting him to order the release of Motilal. But from the jail Motilal sent a telegram to the Viceroy saying, "Please do not release me on any account." It was to avoid any mis- understanding.
