Kak Ton,
Not only have they arrested them, they have also pushed through with amendment to the constitution. Just for a year? Is the guy that irreplaceable that they have to change the constitution to suit their needs? Might as well change it to a lifetime. He will be able to do their biddings till the last breath.
