The working of the State Government
There will be two or three assembly meetings conducted every year. The most important business of the assembly is to create a law which is allocated to the state and concurrent list.
Powers of the Assembly:
- It has control over the Ministers and finances.
- It may pass a no confidence motion against the government.
- The government should get acceptance from the assembly to impose, increase or decrease or recall any tax.
- It takes part in the presidential and Lok Sabha elections. Rarely does it also take part in the amendment of the constitution.
Hence the business of the government can be broadly classified into: Creation and execution of laws and ensuring Justice.
