In 1959, the Central Government dismissed the democratically elected government in 1957 elections through the controversial Article 356 of the Indian Constitution following "The Liberation Struggle". After a short period of the President's rule, fresh elections were called in 1960. In these elections, Congress and Praja Socialist Party formed an alliance to counter Communist Party of India in the elections. Congress and Praja Socialist Party alliance got the majority in the election and hence formed the government.
