  1. what r the uses of Legislative Council

    1. Speaking in bookish language it checks hasty decisions and despotic tendencies of legislative assembly,and accommodates talented persons who don't want to contest elections.
      In reality it has no powers.It can not even stall an ordinary bill in a way Rajya Sabha does.So it is waste of money from state's exchequer.
