And a day later, on Tuesday (10 July) fourteen more members of parliament resigned from the Janata Party. This further reduces the ruling party's overall majority, 24 hours before a no-confidence motion.

Demands for the resignation of Prime Minister Morarji Desai continued to grow as the former Janata party members promised they would support the no-confidence motion. outside the house members of the Jamait-E-Ulema Hind Party--a non-communal Moslem group, defied the ban on demonstrations in the area and shouted anti-government slogans. But later they peacefully entered police vans to be taken away. The group announced they intend to stage similar protests every day for the next few weeks.

    There have been growing allegations that the Janata Party is dominated by a Militant Hindu revivalist group.
