Ambedkar expected Article 356 (President's Rule) to be a dead letter. Have we this prophecy?

What should have been a dead letter of the Constitution became a potent weapon to murder democracy across the country..It needs to be underscored that these Emergency Provisions were probably never used, but only misused. The Constitution is clear about the use of 356. It can only be invoked if a “situation has arisen where the government of the state cannot be carried on in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution.” But so far, defections were engineered, rebellions were created and state governments were reduced to an artificial minority to create an illusion of a Constitutional crisis to get a hostile government sacked..
