This chapter considers whether the proposal to dissolve the Lok Sabha is the prime minister's sole prerogative, or whether it should be based on a decision by his council of ministers. It describes the case of H. D. Deve Gowda who planned to go the polls as caretaker prime minister and attempted to convince about sixty Members of Parliament to defect after he failed to secure a vote of confidence in the Lok Sabha on 11 April 199. The chapter discusses works related to the prime minister's advice for the dissolution of Lok Sabha, including Ivor Jennings' Cabinet Government, Geoffrey Marshall's Constitutional Conventions, and Eugene A. Forsey's The Royal Power of Dissolution of Parliament in the British Commonwealth.

Keywords:   Lok Sabha, prime minister, council of ministers, H. D. Deve Gowda, Ivor Jennings, Cabinet Government, Geoffrey Marshall, Dissolution of Lok Sabha, Eugene A. Forsey
