  • In the intro, mention the issue of delays by the Speakers, President and the Governors.
  • In the body, discuss how the Constitution design gets threatened by the delays in the delay by a functionary in performing their duty. In the next part, discuss how this issue could result in the constitutional crisis on several occasion and how judiciary was forced to intervene to avert such crises in the past.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for fixing time limits through an amendment to decide on such matters.
