The Congress Working Committee, in its meeting in Wardha on July 14, 1924, passed the historic ‘Quit India ‘resolution demanding for the immediate transfer of power to India and quit India.

On August 8, 1942 in Bombay, The All India Congress Committee endorse the resolution which are called for a non-violent mass struggle on the widest possible scale throughout the country. People observed hartals and demonstrative and processions were accompanied by national songs and slogans.

The movement was truly a mass movement that brought into its ambit thousands of ordinary people. It also saw the active participation of leaders, namely Jay Prakash Narayan, Arona Asif Ali and Ram Manohar Lohia and many women such as Matagini Hazra, Kanaklata Baru and Ramadevi. The British responded with much force, yet it took more than a year to suppress the movement.
