The oath taken by Bansuri Swaraj, BJP MP from New Delhi Lok Sabha seat and daughter of former Union Minister Sushma Swaraj, is much talked about. She took oath in Sanskrit language like her mother.

Bansuri Swaraj has reached the Parliament for the first time

The video of Bansuri Swaraj's swearing-in is going viral on social media. Bansuri's video is being shared with an old video of her mother Sushma Swaraj. Let us tell you that Bansuri Swaraj has reached Parliament for the first time by winning the Lok Sabha elections. She won from New Delhi seat in her first Lok Sabha election. She defeated Somnath Bharti of Aam Aadmi Party by a margin of 78,370 votes.

Under the talented leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we are all committed to fulfilling the resolve of a developed, prosperous and self-reliant India.”

Linguistic diversity seen in swearing-in ceremony

When the newly elected members of the Lok Sabha took oath on Monday, India's linguistic diversity was visible. Most of the members took oath in Hindi, while many members took the oath of truth and fidelity in Sanskrit, Assamese, Maithili, Telugu, Punjabi and other Indian languages. On the first day of the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first to take oath as a member of the House and he took the oath in Hindi.
