On March 20, 1927, B R Ambedkar led the famous Mahad Satyagraha to forcibly implement the 1923 resolution of the Bombay Legislative Council which stated that the Depressed Classes should be allowed to freely use public places. The resolution could not be implemented in Mahad due to opposition from upper-caste Hindus. In a radical act of defiance, Ambedkar, along with thousands of members of the Depressed Classes, drank water from the Chawder tank. This resulted in a violent response from the upper castes who argued that the tank had been defiled by the untouchables.
