the lok sabha is more powerful than rajya sabha. explain by giving three reasons?

Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha are parts of the Indian Parliament. However, the Lok Sabha enjoys greater powers than the Rajya Sabha.

(1) The Lok Sabha consists of directly elected representatives of the people and hence, it is in direct link with the people.

(2) All money bills can be presented only in the Lok Sabha. The Rajya Sabha has no authority to pass a money bill.

(3) In case of an ordinary law, if there is a difference of opinion between the two houses, then a joint sitting takes place and owing to the greater strength of the Lok Sabha, the opinion of the Lok Sabha generally prevails.

(4) The Lok Sabha controls the government. Only the government that enjoys the support of the Lok Sabha survives. The Rajya Sabha has no say in this matter.
