This chapter focuses on the press communiqué issued by the Rashtrapati Bhawan on 13 March 1991, which announced the president's order, under Article 85(2)(b) of the Constitution, to dissolve the Lok Sabha. It also said that the financial provisions should be passed by the Parliament. The chapter analyzes the events leading to the resignation of Prime Minister Chandra Sekhar. It contends that the budget could be passed through a note-on-account in the Lok Sabha if there was necessary support for it, thus avoiding an ordinance in the process, even if the government does not seem to have a majority.
