President of India is the head of state and the supreme commander of the Indian Armed forces. All the resolutions passed in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha are sent to him / her for final approval.
Prime Minister of India is the head of the government having all the powers in his hands. Yet PM is selected / elected / picked-up from among the members of parliament by the members of both the houses, as the PM is expected to be appointed according to the Indian constitution.
Unfortunately the PM is practically picked-up by the head of the ruling party or the office bearers of the ruling party.
India needs PMs that is elected by all the constituencies of India directly, irrespective of his / her party affiliation, just in the way the presidents in the US are elected from every nook and corner of the country.
In India many times PMs were appointed by merely based on the number of the MPs who got majority in the election and got power in the union government even by horse trading of independent MPs or the MPs of some unknown and least known regional parties.
Indian system of appointing the heads of government needs to be changes. In fact the PM should have the powers of head of government as well as the head of the state.
