Quit India Movement

Gandhi’s calls for ‘Quit India’ and ‘Do or Die’ thoroughly stirred the entire nation. Fearing arrest, Shastriji went underground and actively worked from ‘Anand Bhawan’.

Later he shifted to Keshavdev Malviya’s residence and finally went to remote villages to continue the freedom struggle. Despite of best efforts, Police could not arrest him and Shastriji broke the law at 5 pm on 20th August near Clock Tower Chowk, Allahabad and was arrested by Police along with his mother and wife.
