This chapter discusses President R. Venkataraman's unsuccessful moves for a national government in the wake of the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi. His proposals were in two parts. One envisaged the establishment of a national government to conduct the polls to find the party that would form the next government. The second proposal envisaged convening a constituent assembly to amend or even to rewrite the Constitution and, possibly, the cancellation of the elections.
