This chapter discusses the pertinent provisions of the Constitution which show precisely in what circumstances a budget can be deferred. It then demonstrates how these provisions would be perverted if Prime Minister Chandra Sekhar went ahead with the plan to present a budget in May or early June. It argues that the present Lok Sabha has been denuded of usefulness and viability, ceasing to serve as a source of democratic legitimacy or political stability for any government. The government's inability to present a budget to parliament is also an acknowledgement of its lack of parliamentary support, itself a ground for its resignation.
