[D] 1, 2 and 3

Answer: A

Explanation: Because of drought in 1918, the crops failed in Kheda district of Gujarat. Gandhi asked the farmers not to pay the taxes. Gandhi, however, was mainly the spiritual head of the struggle.

  • It was Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and a group of other devoted Gandhians, namely, Narahari Parikh, Mohanlal Pandya and Ravi Shankar Vyas,who went around the villages, organised the villagers and told them what to do and gave the necessary political leadership.
  • Patel along with his colleagues organised the tax revolt which the different ethnic and caste communities of Kheda supported.
