Satyagraha - then and now

I have been thinking about this for a few days now. And this article 'The government against satyagrahas, then and now' only reinforced this thought. Clearly the current government is following the steps of their erstwhile predecessor (the British), the difference is that we elected this government using our 'powerful' votes.

I'm in effect reliving my history books, i am getting to know more about 'divide and rule', 'disregard for public emotion and rights', 'deflection', 'involve in committees, only to disregard', 'arrogance' and the view that 'might is greater than right'.
