Never before in India’s parliamentary history has a government’s fate hung so delicately on the vote of confidence motion.
Will Dr Manmohan Singh’s government be able put together the required number – 272 members of Parliament – on July 22, a prospect that sometimes looks possible and sometimes impossible?
Which way will the block of Undecided MPs go? Will the Samajwadi Party end up with egg on its face – and fewer than promised MPs to show for it – when the votes are counted?
It is the most tantalising time in India's parliamentary history, and as always rediff.com will bring you the action as it happens, and enable you to join in the deliberations through its Trust Vote Chat.
