    NEW DELHI: President Pranab Mukherjee today dissolved the 15th Lok Sabha with immediate effect, completing a formality before the constitution of the new House.

    "The President accepted the advice of the Cabinet and today signed the Order dissolving the 15th Lok Sabha in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by sub-clause (b) of Clause (2) Article 85 of the Constitution," Rashtrapati Bhavan Press Secretary Venu Rajamony said.

    The outgoing Union Cabinet, in its last meeting yesterday under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, had advised the President to dissolve the 15th Lok Sabha with immediate effect.

    After this, parliamentary affairs minister Kamal Nath had called upon the President and handed over a decision of Cabinet with the recommendation.

    The BJP secured majority on its own in the elections for the 16th Lok Sabha by winning 282 seats where as Congress could bag only 44.

    The Election Commission will now be submitting the list of newly elected members of the 16th Lok Sabha to the President.

    The list containing the names of all 543 members of parliament will be handed over to the President by a three-member EC team headed by chief election commissioner V S Sampath.

    I don't think the Maa- Beta would have allowed him to do anything.
    Even as Finance minister he was frustrated. But if he was to be without any remote control. he would have been one of the best PM India would have had. He had the courage to look into the face of people when he was saying truth, when he could not, he would just read the statement. The dynastic politics of Congress has really left India in mess specially when very good leaders being overlooked and some stupid jokers being made ministers.
    Sushil Kumar shinde was a big joke, Thank god he lost.
