Restoring Democratic Governance

(p.409) Chapter 19 Restoring Democratic Governance
Working a Democratic Constitution

Granville Austin

Oxford University Press

In the recurrently stormy political weather, the Janata government went about the task of restoring the Indian Constitution. The principal tasks of Morarji Desai's government were to repeal legislation damaging to the Fundamental Rights and to restore a democratic Constitution through a comprehensive amendment, Acting President B. D. Jatti told Parliament in his inaugural address in April 1977. These endeavours were to proceed in parallel. This chapter deals with restoring the Constitution. It describes the lengthy amending preparations, the emergence of the Forty-third Amendment, the drafting of Forty-third Amendment, and the Forty-third Amendment in Parliament.

Keywords:   Indian Constitution, Morarji Desa, B. D. Jatti, Forty-third Amendment, Indian Parliament
