Q. Who among the following went to Gandhi for help in fighting for justice, in Ahmadabad Mill Strike?

[A] Ambalal Sarabhai

[B] Anusuya Sarabhai

[C] Sardar Vallabhai patel

[D] Jawaharlal Nehru

Answer: B
Notes:

Explanation: The relations between the workers and the mill owners worsened with the striking workers being arbitrarily dismissed and the mill owners deciding to bring in weavers from Bombay.

  • The workers of the mill turned to Anusuya Sarabhai for help in fighting for justice.
  • Anusuya Sarabhai was a social worker who was also the sister of Ambalal Sarabhai, one of the mill owners and the president of the Ahmedabad Mill Owners Association (founded in 1891 to develop the textile industry in Ahmedabad), for help in fighting for justice.
  • Anusuya Behn went to Gandhi, who was respected by the mill owners and workers, and asked him to intervene and help resolve the impasse between the workers and the employers.
