And earlier this year, Endangered Species Act (ESA). The prime minister had just twenty days to decide. ******… Rao immediately scheduled a meeting of the CCPA He craftily invited the HRD minister Arjun Singh to join—so that he could not absolve himself of responsibility later At least five CCPA meetings were held that November During these meetings Rao repeatedly asked whether Article 356 could be legitimately invoked In his memoirs Madhav Godbole denies that there was any definite opinion voiced on Article 356 during discussions in the CCPA However his version is contested by two officials as well as one minister who attended the meetings—but who do not want to be named They remember distinctly the consensus articulated in the meetings: that Article 356 applied only when ‘a situation has arisen’ not when it is anticipated Naresh Chandra (then Cabinet secretary and later senior advisor of a special Ayodhya cell) one of the few officials willing to speak on record adds: ‘The general feeling in government was that it would not be possible to justify recourse to Article 356 since it did not permit action in anticipation of a breakdown All concerned including PC Rao [the law secretary] shared this view’ The demolition of the Babri Masjid Arjun Singh later claimed that Rao dithered during those meetings while he himself pushed for stronger action This is not supported by the minutes of the CCPA where not a single minister—not Manmohan Singh not Sharad Pawar and certainly not Arjun Singh—demanded the only ‘action’ constitutionally permissible: the dismissal of the Kalyan Singh government Since minutes of the meetings do not always capture all that was discussed this key fact has also been confirmed in interviews with bureaucrats and a politician present Naresh Chandra says ‘Members of the CCPA while urging all steps to be taken to prevent damage to the building did not propose or press on Rao for the imposition of the President’s rule’ The clearest evidence that Rao’s Cabinet was unwilling to invoke Article 356 lies in the CCPA meetings around 20 November 1992 Narasimha Rao was not present since he was travelling on an official visit to Senegal One of the meetings was even held in the office of Arjun Singh Godbole remembers the prime minister telling SB Chavan Arjun Singh and Sharad Pawar that they could take a decision to impose Central rule in UP in his absence They chose not to do so… With his Cabinet and the Opposition unwilling to make the decision for him Rao turned to the Supreme Court… The Supreme Court started hearings in late November In the course of these hearings Kalyan Singh—through his lawyers—swore to protect the mosque The Supreme Court chose to believe him and dismissed Rao’s request for receivership The clearest evidence that Rao’s Cabinet was unwilling to invoke Article 356 lies in the CCPA meetings around 20 November 1992 The intelligence bureau was Rao’s own detective force—to keep tabs on his Cabinet colleagues on his enemies and even on Sonia Gandhi It is no surprise then that he asked the IB to send him reports from Ayodhya The IB sent two reports that November The first claimed that the mosque was under threat but stopped short of recommending President’s rule The second report around early December contained rumours that a VHP suicide squad was being trained to blow up the mosque on 6 December This was an explosive claim and the IB took great pains to stress that it was unverified The lack of a clear message was typical of IB reports a confidante of Rao says ‘All IB reports present both arguments If the mosque fell they would say we predicted If it didn’t they would say we predicted’ … Narasimha Rao realized he was being checkmated Kalyan Singh had not made one false move through the whole of November The Union Cabinet—including rivals Sharad Pawar and Arjun Singh—were worried about Kalyan Singh’s intentions but had stopped short of recommending his dismissal The Supreme Court the state governor and law ministry officials all seemed against Central rule Were Rao to invoke Article 356 the Supreme Court may well have held the decision to be unconstitutional since law and order had not yet broken down As Rao told (his secretary) PVRK Prasad ‘How could a democratically elected Government be dismissed as a precautionary measure without any valid reason Would it be constitutional Won’t we attract the odium of having resorted to a blatantly unconstitutional act’ The BJP would have cried Central tyranny and moved a no-confidence motion in Parliament—as they eventually did after 6 December There was no certainty that the non-BJP opposition would back Rao or that his own party would support him As he read Samuel P Huntington’s article The Clash of Civilizations, They also consume 30 per cent less energy than regular Indian Railways trains. and don’t want to drop due to carelessness.
