How was Gandhi able to influence lawyers? Give instances


Answer – 

Gandhi asked the lawyers about their course of action if he was sentenced to jail. They answered that they would return back home. He then asked them what about the plight of the peasants. This made them realize their duty towards the social issue and they decided to go to jail with Gandhi. If being an outsider, Gandhiji could court arrest for the cause of the peasants, then they were ashamed of themselves not to act and rather charge hefty fee from them.
