Answer : C

Explanation : Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel was the leader of Bardoli Satyagraha (1928), and its success gave rise to Patel becoming one of the main leaders of the independence movement. In 1925 the taluka of Bardoli in Gujarat suffered from floods and famine, causing crop production to suffer and leaving farmers facing freat financial troubles However, the government of the presidency raised the tax rate by 130%, hence, after this incident the women of Bardoli bestowed Vallabh Bhai Patel with the title of Sardar.
