Born into a Vokkaligas family, Deve Gowda was raised in that subcaste’s agricultural tradition. He earned a degree in civil engineering in 1952 from a polytechnic school in Mysore state (which was renamed Karnataka in 1973) and then worked as a contractor and a member of the Indian National Congress from 1953 to 1962, when he abandoned the party and was elected to the Mysore state legislative assembly and a member of the assembly for four consecutive terms, during which he became known as a champion for the disadvantaged. Deve Gowda Wiki

Deve Gowda was imprisoned during the Indian Emergency (1975–77; the period when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi suspended the constitution and ruled by decree). In the 1980s he served as Karnataka’s minister of public works and irrigation, and in 1991 he was elected to the Lok Sabha (the lower chamber of India’s parliament). Over the course of the next several years, he worked to bring greater attention to the plight of agrarian communities. Deve Gowda Wiki

In 1994 Deve Gowda assumed leadership over the Janata Dal party and became Karnataka’s chief minister. In the parliamentary elections held in 1996, the United Front (a Janata Dal-led 13-party coalition) formed a government at the centre with the support of the Congress (I) Party in order to prevent the Bharatiya Janata Party from coming to power. Deve Gowda was sworn in as the new prime minister. Deve Gowda Wiki

His tenure, however, was short-lived. In April 1997 the Congress (I) Party withdrew its support for the coalition. The reason given was that, although Deve Gowda’s minority United Front government was dependent upon the Congress, the prime minister did not consult the party regarding important matters. On April 11, 1997, Gowda lost a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha by a wide margin; Inder Kumar Gujral, then minister for external affairs, was chosen as the coalition leader. Deve Gowda Wiki

Deve Gowda was later elected to the Rajya Sabha (Council of States; 1996–98) and was reelected to the Lok Sabha for multiple terms. Deve Gowda Wiki
