Paper shows that the process was fraught with irregularities and ushered in a negotiated constitution in place of the initially touted people driven constitution. It intends to reveal the pitfalls of a negotiated constitution making process. Concludes that in a transitional period, people driven constitution making is at least too ambitious and at the worst totally unfeasible.
