August 9, 1951.
My Dear Bakshi Sahib,
I have just dissolved the
cabinet which functioned till today and have relieved
it of the powers and functions of civil administration
of the State. I, however, feel that a new Cabinet
should be constituted immediately so as to avoid a
political and administrative vacuum.
In the task of forming a new
Ministry, I have decided told seek your aid and
advice. Will you, therefore, make it convenient to
meet me immediately so that we might discuss the
formation and composition of the new Cabinet?
I need hardly and that the
continuance in office of the new Cabinet will depend
upon its securing a vote of confidence from the
Legislative Assembly during its coming session.
