Best Answer

Gandhi was deeply shocked at the incident. He started a five-day fast to repent for what he thought was his incompetence that resulted in the bloodshed. Gandhi felt that the people of India were not sufficiently trained and prepared to fight against the British with Non-violence. And he had not perceived the situation and incited the people to revolt.
