Congress endorses resolution

The Pune Protocol was endorsed by a meet of the leaders and it asked the government to take necessary steps to see that Gandhi ended his fast. The meet also endorsed a resolution in which it was stated that the Hindus should not treat one as untouchable because one was born in a particular caste. They, the so-called untouchables should be given free access to public schools, public roads and public wells. 

The denial of entry to the temples and all other discriminations that the depressed classes face should be removed once and for all. When the Congress comes to power after independence, they would implement all these decisions, the resolution assured the people.

And Gandhi ended his fast, accepting a glass of orange juice, given by his wife, Kasturba. Thus ended an ordeal that put the entire country in a period of tension, uncertainty and anxiety. And Gandhi was released from jail after some hesitations.
