Advice to the speaker, united opposition… victory was achieved on the speaker but this time the government faces a big challenge


New Delhi: I have formed the opinion that if there is no official leader of the opposition, the House does not run properly. We are happy that the country has got a leader of the opposition. This was said by an MP of the opposition alliance India on Wednesday while congratulating Om Birla on being elected Speaker of the Lok Sabha. The future of Parliament is hidden in what was said while congratulating. This is not just the words of one MP. Leaders of all opposition parties including Congress, SP, TMC, Shiv Sena (UBT), Nationalist Congress Party (Sharadchandra Pawar) congratulated Om Birla on being elected Speaker and also tried to say their Mann Ki Baat. These leaders emphasized that their words will also have to be heard. From the beginning of the session till now, the opposition has appeared completely united. From the swearing-in till now, the opposition is trying to tell that now things are not the same as before. This time the opposition has become much stronger compared to the first two terms of PM Modi. This directly means that the challenge of the opposition is going to increase in the coming times.Which leader said what while congratulating the speaker

Rahul Gandhi: I would like to congratulate you on being elected Speaker for the second time. This House represents the voice of the people of India and you are the custodian of that voice. No doubt, the government has the power of authority but the opposition also represents the voice of the people of India.

Akhilesh Yadav: Congratulated Om Birla and expressed hope that his 'control' will remain on the opposition as well as the ruling party and no action like expulsion will be taken. We believe that as the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, you will give equal opportunity to every MP and every party.

Sudip Bandopadhyay:
Trinamool Congress MPs also congratulated Birla. He said, “I feel that if there is no official leader of the opposition, the House does not function properly. We are happy that the country has got a leader of the opposition.” He told the Lok Sabha Speaker that even though your intentions are good, sometimes you have to bow to the pressure of the ruling party.

Supriya Sule: Nationalist Congress Party (Sharadchandra Pawar) MP Supriya Sule said that she was very saddened by the suspension of 150 members. She said that now I request you not to take action of suspension. The matter can also be resolved through talks.

The reality is that the government has the numbers but not the mandate. The opposition has the mandate. Therefore, smaller parties should get a chance. I come from a community whose representation in this House is just 4 percent. They should get a chance. This time the composition of the House has changed. Now the BJP will not be able to dominate.

Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM MP

The opposition showed its strength on the first day of the 18th Lok Sabha
On the first day of the 18th Lok Sabha, looking at the scene inside and outside the House, it seemed that the opposition was going to do something different. Congress Parliamentary Party chief Sonia Gandhi, party president Mallikarjun Kharge, former president Rahul Gandhi and the parties included in the opposition alliance reached the House with a copy of the Constitution and showed solidarity. Before the proceedings began, MPs of the opposition alliance gathered in the Parliament premises and also raised slogans against the government. They raised slogans of 'We will protect the Constitution' and 'Dictatorship will not work'. Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah of attacking the Constitution and said that he does not accept this.

Now Rahul Gandhi will be in a new role
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Wednesday officially recognized former Congress President Rahul Gandhi as the Leader of Opposition in the House. This information has been given in the notification of the Lok Sabha Secretariat. In the meeting of opposition parties on Tuesday, it was decided that Rahul Gandhi will be the Leader of the Opposition. At the time of this decision, the Congress President said that a leader touring the whole country from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and Manipur to Maharashtra will raise the voice of the people, especially the deprived and the poor. Rahul Gandhi has been constantly attacking PM Modi. Now he will be in a new role. In such a situation, he will try his best to corner the government even inside the House.
A glimpse seen during the swearing-in ceremony
This time, strange colors were seen during the oath taking ceremony. Most of the opposition MPs reached the Parliament with a copy of the Constitution. When they reached to take oath, they had a copy of the Constitution in their hands. Rahul Gandhi reached to take oath with a copy of the Constitution in his hand. He also showed it to the ruling party. Not only Rahul Gandhi, most of the opposition members were also seen doing the same. The opposition also responded to the slogans raised by the ruling party with slogans. This is just the beginning of the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha, but from the glimpse seen, it is clear that this time the challenge before the government is big.
