LETKOL Untung menegaskan bahwa gerakan yang dipimpinnya bertujuan untuk menghentikan Dewan Jenderal yang dikatakan tengah mempersiapkan kudeta tanggal 5 Oktober 1965. Dewan Revolusi Indonesia juga menunda pelaksanaan Pemilu dan membekukan UUD 1945, serta mempersiapkan sumber hukum baru bagi otoritas Republik Indonesia.
Kabinet Dwikora yang dipimpin Presiden Sukarno juga dinyatakan demisioner. Menteri Kabinet Dwikora diminta menjalankan tugas sehari-hari seperti biasa, sampai terbentuk kabinet baru.
Dari bagian ini kita dapat melihat bahwa sesunggunya Bung Karno adalah korban dari kudeta yang dilakukan kelompok Untung. Tetapi anehnya, Bung Karno malah dikaitkan dengan kudeta tersebut.
“Bagaimana mungkin saya mengkudeta diri saya sendiri,” begitu kira-kira kata Bung Karno suatu kali.
Namun kejanggalan ini sengaja ditutupi militer yang dikuasai Soeharto dengan maksud agar Bung Karno ikut tersingkir.
Dalam Dekrit no. 1 yang dibacakan Letkol Untung tanggal 1 Oktober 1965 pukul 2 siang di RRI, disebutkan bahwa Dewan Revolusi Indonesia juga tengah menyusun organisasi pemerintahan dari tingkat pusat sampai desa. Setelah terbentuk di masing-masing tingkat, anggota Dewan Revolusi di daerah-daerah wajib melaporkan diri ke pimpinan pusat Dewan Revolusi Indonesia untuk mendapatkan pengesahan.
Petikan dekrit ini ambil dari Jurnal Indonesia Volume 1/April 1966, yang diterbitkan Cornell University.
Lima menit setelah dekrit ini, Untung membacakan dekrit yang berisi daftar anggota Dewam Revolusi Indonesia.
