Answer

Correct Option is neither 1 nor 2

"The proclamation would have to be approved by the Houses of the parliament in the same manner as in case of a National Emergency. However, even if Parliament has approved the proclamation, it will normally cease to operate 6 months after the Parliamentary approval. President’s rule can be extended to three years. A proclamation imposing President’s rule must be approved by both the houses within two months. Every such resolution approving the emergency has to be passed by each of the houses of Parliament by a majority of not less than two-thirds of the members present and voting. Hence both statements are incorrect."
