One of the biggest culprit for failure of the Janata Government was Chaudhary Charan Singh

One of the biggest culprit for failure of the Janata Government was Chaudhary Charan Singh. I still remember, his daughter had told news paper that since her childhood Chaudharyji had raised his his children like children of Prime Minister(?)! I was in school back then and everyone at home & in school was asking whether in Indian Democracy Prime Minister is a king? Had we not thrown Indira out of power for behaving the same way? Before that as a Finance Minister, Charan Sing had played havoc in his budget. He had imposed heavy excise duty on every necessity of life ….. even on tooth brush and tooth paste calling them luxuries! George Fernandez one day spoke in favour of the incumbent Government but next day defected.

Mrunal Gore and such Leaders were behaving as if they were in opposition and were opposing ever decision of own Govt. Pramil Dandavate was on forefront of the protest march against Railway budget of her own husband! Rajnarayan was known for his pranks more than his any good quality. His only deal for fame was his case against Indira Gandhi. I still remember the cartoon R.K. Laxman’s cartoon on his protest and so called fasting till death. Every leader of Janta Party was trying to pull each other’s legs. Morarji Desai was arrogant, Babu Jagjivan Ram had to bow his head down due to the photographs of his son.

They were not fit to stay together and JayPrakash Narayan was looking very helpless. Total picture was disgusting. On the very first day of swearing in of Charan Sing Govt. everyone had predicted that Indira had laid a trap. Voters were feeling helpless in the dirty, greedy politics of all leaders and stopped going for voting which resulted in entry of gundas in politics. Rest is history. Till today the real estate business is in the hand of people with criminal history. The documentary should have included even those facts why people were angry with Janata Party Leaders. By the way History was repeated once again and Congress had laid same trap for Chandrashekar!
