Gandhi's Policies On Governance

An army should be non-violent.

Majority party should voluntarily withdraw from the business of governing.

Economy should reject all technological advances.

A society should abide by his own standards of austerity as well as humanitarian ideals.

Gandhi also wanted to close Congress after the Independence, since it served it's purpose. But, none of the other top leaders agreed to that.

Gandhi wrote the following in the Hind Swaraj.

India's salvation consists in unlearning what she has learnt during the last fifty years. The railways, the telegraphs, hospitals, lawyers, doctors and the such like have to go; and the so-called upper classes have to learn consciously, religiously and deliberately the simple peasant life, knowing it to be a life-giving true happiness.
