Not alike other political theories, Gandhian philosophy had never been claimed to be materialist strictly. The Satyagrahas was the political weapon used in Gandhian movement that has been considered as an emotional force and effective movement. The classical view of the conflict between the capitalists and working class has ruled the attempts to analyse the class relations in the contemporary society of India. The requirement of the resources for the survival of the people was threatened by the increase in demand. The utilization of the resources for the production of goods and services in India is shown for the betterment of the structure. The resources were utilized by the people who captured India and imposed significant threat to the people of India. Gandhi fight for the right and the resources were depleted in India.
The uses of the power of moral force were not the indicator of the nonmaterial objectives of these movements (Miśra and Tripathi, 2010). In Gandhian movements, the strong material basis became visible after the analysis of the actual issues and settlement of the conflicts that were undertaken in the Stayagrahas. In the Champaran, it was used commonly to save the farmers of India from the indigo cultivation in place of the food crops. In Dandi march and other parts of the nation, it was used to protest against the exploitation of the salt law. The British rulers usually suppressed these non-violent protests. In Central India, Gond tribal were running down for participating in the Satyagraha.
Villagers removed the forest productions from reserved forests for fulfilling their rights to satisfy their basic needs. The satyagrahas was successful in the regions where the survival of the local people was intimately connected with the access to the forests in the Western Ghats, Central Indian Hills and Himalaya. The main objective of the development in the financial terms is illustrated as the contemporary forest management in the post-independence India where the increase in the demand and cost has led to the destruction of the forest ecosystems. There was massive loss due to droughts and floods. In the ecologically sensitive areas such as the Himalaya, there was the destruction of the forest that had threatened the survival of the community. The responses of the people to this crisis had emerged as the non-violent Gandian movement.
