This chapter focuses on the constitutional questions raised by the withdrawl of Congress(I) support to the Deve Gowda government. An aspect that has bearing on future course of action is that there is a breach of faith by the Congress(I) who had earlier assured the President, Dr Shankar Dayal Sharma that they would support the candidature of Deve Gowda. The chapter asserts that often in the past such vague reassurances have proved hollow. It is therefore necessary that the president should ask for 'copper-bottomed' accord, based on a written guarantee of support for a clearly defined minimum common programme.

Keywords:   resignation, prime minister, shankar dayal sharma, president, written guarantee
