Eliamma, Annakutti and Marymol read the section on the President

Eliamma, Annakutti and Marymol read the section on the President. Each of them had a question. Can you help them in answering these questions?
(a) Eliamma What happens if the President and the Prime Minister disagree about some policy? Does the view of the Prime Minister always prevail?
(b) Annakutti I find it funny that the President is the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces. I doubt if the President can even lift a heavy gun. What is the point in making the President the Commander?
© Marymol I would say, what is the point in having a President at all if all the real powers are with the Prime Minister?

(a) Answer to Eliamma
The Prime Minister’s view always prevails. However, if the President does not agree to some bill sent for approval, she is empowered to send It back for reconsideration to the Parliament, giving the reasons for doing so. Now, if the Parliament approves it once again, the President cannot stop the bill. She will now have to approve it.
(b) Answer to Annakutti
The Supreme Commander is the one, who gives the orders to fight a war. A commander is not always required to use firearms; only she should have the wisdom (usually after consultation with the senior members of the government and armed forces) to issue the necessary orders.

The President is a symbol of the power of the country. The President is required to take decisions on appointing the Prime Minister, who must have majority support. . , .
The President has many other functions like appointing Governors of States, representing India as Head of State, etc.
