Powers of President and Cabinet

Jeevan Nair (Author) U.C. Jain (Author)
Synopsis Powers of President and Cabinet deals with the many grey areas in the Constitution of India in regard to the powers of the President vis-a-vis that of the Prime Minister and his Cabinet. It describes in detail the issues which divided even the framers of the Constitution on this issue while they were drafting the document. This book quotes extensively from the writings of illustrious leaders who drafted the Constitution, and discusses their prejudices and biases as revealed in these writings. It also chronicles the various occasions when the President and the Cabinet took up antagonistic positions on issues and the outcome of the protracted arguments between the two pillars of democracy. Powers of President and Cabinet discusses the complexities of residual power when frequent general elections left the country facing long periods of lame duck administration. The attitude and rulings of the Supreme Court of India on the issue of supremacy between the President and Parliament in times of political crisis is also explained with full details of the references made to the apex court. Students and teachers of Political Science as well as those having an interest in the powers and working of the administrative and political structure of the country will find this book a useful addition to their knowledge.
