By early 1999, the NDA government lost its majority after the AIADMK withdrew its support. President Kechil Raman Narayanan dissolved the Parliament and called fresh elections – the third in two years
Now after the withdrawing of Trinmool Congress and DMK, parliament should be dissolved, if UPA government itself doesn’t resign. Why is President Pranab delaying in dissolving the parliament to follow K R Narayanan of 1999?
After the 1996 general election, the BJP emerged as the single largest party in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of Parliament. Vajpayee was invited by President Shankar Dayal Sharma to form a government, but after 13 days in office, proved unable to muster a governing majority and resigned. He was replaced by H. D. Dewe Gowda, leader of the United Front (UF) coalition, and became the Leader of the Opposition.
The United Front was only able to sustain a majority in Parliament until 1998, resigning after the Indian National Congress withdrew its support.
In the Indian general election, 1998 the BJP again emerged as the single-largest party, but was able to assemble a governing coalition called the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Other constituents of the NDA included the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), Bahujan Samaj Party, Shiv Sena, Shiromani Akali Dal, National Conference (NC) and the Trinamool Congress (TC), amongst others.
By early 1999, the NDA government lost its majority after the AIADMK withdrew its support. President Kechil Raman Narayanan dissolved the Parliament and called fresh elections – the third in two years.
Public anger against smaller parties that jeopardised the NDA coalition and the wave of support for the Vajpayee government in the aftermath of the Kargil War gave the BJP a larger presence in the Lok Sabha. The NDA won a decisive majority with the support of new constituents such as the Janata Dal (United) and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam.
“Manmohan Singh-government has turned into a minority. They can remain in power by utilising the number game in Parliament. It first became a minority government when the Trinamool Congress withdrew support last year, and now by the DMK,” TMC all-India general secretary Mukul Roy told a press conference here.
“This government has no moral right to continue in office for a single moment,” after the withdrawing of TMC with 19 Lok Sabha members and the DMK, which has 18 Lok Sabha MPs.
Karunanidhi would not bring down UPA Govt: Effect of Congress Bureau of Investigation CBI
With the outside support of the Samajwadi Party (22) and Bahujan Samaj Party (21) and some others, the ruling UPA is confident of remaining in power till the middle of next year when the general elections are due. But now in public domain that UPA survives by using the sword of CBI undemocratically and against the constitution. There should be litigation and the mass movement against the present minority UPA government.
CBI behaves as terrorists act for Pakistan
After SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, his son and UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday launched a blistering attack on the Congress, alleging anybody who does not act according to its wishes faces “persecution” through CBI. Congress uses CBI cases against Mulayam and Mforaya and others for getting their support by using unconstitutional force.
It is rightly published at The Hindu: The cat mouse game, may be interesting to watch and also good for the opportunistic players on the arena, but certainly not for the country and the ibdian public.
Or maybe PC issued a threat that the CBI would be sent to Mulayam's house.
That made to prop up support to Manmohan singh's government, after all No party has misused government machinery as the congress.(And yes they all do it for the benefit of the country). .
Besides the above, bribery is also being given to the parties SP, Trinmool to force them for not withdrawing. Even Congress presents bribery-bread before other leaders such as Nitish Kumar, CM of Bihar.
Flog a dead horse tendency among Anti-Congress parties up
Mulayam Nitish alike know the tricks to let Congress remaining in power
