This chapter analyses the decision of Prime Minister H. D. Deve Gowda to become leader of the Rajya Sabha after he failed to secure a vote of confidence in the Lok Sabha. It argues that Deve Gowda's action damaged not only his own credibility and prestige but also the prestige and authority of the office of the nation's chief executive. The chapter also examines B. R. Ambedkar's statement on a similar issue in December 1948 and explains Richard Crossman's theory of prime ministerial government.

Keywords:   H. D. Deve Gowda, Rajya Sabha, Lok Sabha, vote of no confidence, chief executive, B. R. Ambedkar, Richard Crossman, prime ministerial government
