Sharp attitude of opposition
PM Narendra Modi was the first to take oath in the House. When PM Modi, dressed in an off-white kurta and jacket, reached the podium to take the oath, the entire House suddenly became noisy.

From the opposition side, the panel included DMK's TR Balu, Congress's K Suresh and TMC's Sudip Bandopadhyay, but the opposition was seen opposing the panel. The opposition alleged that the government ignored parliamentary decorum in the selection of the Protem Speaker. When Home Minister Amit Shah came to take the oath, the opposition MPs waved copies of the Constitution.

Taking a dig at senior Bihar leader and minister Giriraj Singh, Banerjee smilingly said that our seats increased because of you, he feels that in the coming time these parties can leave the NDA. When Andhra Pradesh BJP President D Purandeswari went to take oath, the opposition mocked her and said, are you making her the speaker?
