In the freedom struggle, Shiroda played its own roll. In Shiroda one can notice Mithagars (the place where salt is created, situated near sea shore). Mahatma Gandhi was leading the Civil Disobedience Movement. He stared this movement in Dandi, Gujarat to end tax imposed on salt by British rulers. A similar act was followed in Shiroda under the leadership of Acharya Dharamand Kosambi, Acharya Jawadekar, Dr. Bhageuwat, Achyutrea Patwardhan, Appasaheb Patwardhan (Konkan Gandhi), Devdas Ranade, Mamasaheb Deogirikar were other stalwarts. This Shiroda version of Civil Disobedience Movement, started on May 12th, 1930, resulted in the arrest of 90 satyagrahis (one who fights for the truth). Satyagrahis had to endure lathi charge by Britishers. This suppression sought its peak on 14th May, but Satryagrahis' strong will proved to be much stronger than British oppression measures.
