C.M. can advise Assembly dissolution

The Home Minister, Mr. Y.B. Chavan said in the Lok Sabha to-day [December 16, New Delhi] that they had the greatest respect for the decisions of the Speakers’ Conference, that when a Chief Minister’s majority was in doubt the Assembly must be convened within a week to decide the fate of the Ministry, but pleaded ‘helplessness’ to implement them. Mr. Chavan also said that what a Governor should do in a constitutional situation was ‘none of the business of the Central Government’. The Home Minister was replying to a volley of questions on a call attention motion by Mr. A.B. Vajpayee (J.S.) and four others. Mr. Vajpayee said that All India Radio broadcast on December 10 the view of a Home Ministry spokesman that the Chief Minister of Haryana, who had lost the majority in the Assembly, was within his rights to advise the Governor to dissolve the State Assembly.
