Explanation:

Statement 1 is wrong: Article 352: Every Emergency Proclamation issued needs to be laid before each House of Parliament

Statement 2 is correct: Article 75(3): The Council of Ministers shall be collectively responsible to the Lok Sabha. So no-confidence motion requires approval of Lok Sabha only.

Statement 3 is wrong: Article 61: If a President is to be impeached, the charge shall be framed by either House of Parliament.
