Correct Option is Both 1 and 2

The Emergency provisions are contained in Part XVIII of the Constitution, from Articles 352 to 360. These provisions enable the Central government to meet any abnormal situation effectively. The rationality behind the incorporation of these provisions in the Constitution is to safeguard the sovereignty, unity, integrity, and security of the country, the democratic political system, and the Constitution. Emergency makes the Central government becomes all-powerful and States go into the total control of the Centre. It converts the federal structure into a unitary one without a formal amendment of the Constitution. Hence Statement 1 and 2 are incorrect.
