THE WEEK AHEAD

NEW DELHI : A Government at Bay

November 06, 1990

Indian Prime Minister V. P. Singh faces a no-confidence motion Wednesday that most analysts expect him to lose. Singh lost his parliamentary majority when a coalition partner withdrew in protest over the use of troops against fundamentalists intent on tearing down a 16th-Century mosque and replacing it with a temple to the Hindu warrior god Rama.

If Singh's government does fall, it may be replaced by a caretaker administration or a new coalition including former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
