    Sir, pl take care while typing the answer as in ur answer president rule typed 365 instead 356

    • Go Sarkari says:

      President’s rule is covered both under Article 356 and 365.

      Article 365 is an extension to emergency powers of President. The Constitution of India has provided the President of India the power to impose emergency using article 352 and article 365 on two different accounts, if the state does not follow the Indian constitution and if the state does not obey the union Government direction. Article 365 says that where any State has failed to comply with, or to give effect to, any directions given in the exercise of the executive power of the Union under any of the provisions of this Constitution, it shall be lawful for the President to hold that a situation has arisen in which the Government of the State cannot be carried on in accordance with the provisions of this Constitution.
