There is much noise on the PM going to the airport to see Congress president of Russia and the external affairs Minister accompanying her.
Is it not by now clear that there are some informal, but structural, amendments to Clauses (2) and (3) of Article 75 of the Indian Constitution?
Clause (2) says that “The ministers shall hold office during the pleasure of the President.”
Clause (3) says that “The Council of Ministers shall be collectively responsible to the House of People.”
The informal amendments are:

Proviso to Cla Clause (3) – “Provided that when there is a government headed by the Congress, ‘House of People’ means ‘Congress President’.
