Question:

A teacher was making preparations for a mock parliament. She called twostudents to act as leaders of two political parties. She gave them an option: Each one could choose to have a majority either in the mock Lok Sabha or in the mock Rajya Sabha. If this choice was given to you, which one would you choose and why?

Answer:

If the choice was given to me, I would choose to have a majority in the mock Lok Sabha because Lok Sabha is more powerful than Rajya Sabha. Some of the reasons are as follows:

  • Only Lok Sabha can originate the Money Bills.
  • In case of a joint session, the Lok Sabha prevails in the voting because it has more members.
  • The Council of Ministers is answerable to the Lok Sabha.
  • The people of the country directly elect the Members of the Lok Sabha.
