Birthday special: Know how JD(S)  Kingmaker Deve Gowda became  14th PM of India

Haradanahalli Doddegowda Deve Gowda was born on 18th of may 1933. He was the 14th prime minister of India after being chief minister of Karnataka.

Deve Gowda became an extremely important person of the  Janata Party as he was the only person to sort some party issues after the party had fallen.

He became the prime minister as an outcome of a very funny incidence.

Failure of formation of a majority leads to a scenario where the leaders of the united front came forward to form a coalition. well, the prime minister to be chosen was still a big task. Eventually, V P Singh was chosen and he got a span of fourteen days to prove his majority but he failed and resigned immediately. Nobody agreed to Lalu Yadav, Mulayam Yadav, and more and more controversies grew.

Finally, everyone agreed only on one person that was Deve Gowda.

There were many jokes also at that time , one of them was

 Lalu : “Bana do kisi Gadhe ya Ghoda ko”. Ghoda was mis- heard as Gowda and we had great Deve Gowda as PM ! 

No offense though , he has been a former prime minister of India and we respect him equally.On his birth anniversary  we remeber him in our prayers and hope he rests in peace.
