The 1991 Indian general election saw the INC remain the largest party in the Legislative Assembly, but only by a single seat.


The 1991 election was held following the death of the incumbent Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, leading to his successor calling a snap election to gain a mandate to govern.


The election saw the Praja Socialist Party surge into second place, only 1 seat behind the INC, enabling it to form a minority government with support from the Muslim League and Liberal Party.
