''Inspired by Bapu, the Quit India Movement witnessed remarkable participation from people across all sections of society including greats like JP and Dr. Lohia,'' Modi tweeted.

The prime minister also posted a picture of Gandhi at the start of the Quit India movement in Bombay.

The decisive campaign against British rule was launched this day in 1942 on Mahatma Gandhi's call at the Bombay session of the Congress on August 8 in his famous ''do or die'' speech. An alarmed British government arrested the top leadership of the Congress but people embraced Gandhi's call.
