New Delhi: Modi government has been formed for the third time in the country, but BJP still faces many challenges. In Modi Government 3.0, MPs from NDA alliance parties have also been made ministers. Now the problem is about the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. According to sources, both the major allies of NDA, JDU and TDP, are eyeing the post of Speaker. At the same time, BJP wants to keep the post of Speaker with itself. In such a situation, now there is news that the opposition Bharat Alliance can also field its candidate for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker, if the post of Deputy Speaker is not given to them. According to sources, the election of the new Speaker for the 18th Lok Sabha will be held on June 26. According to the Lok Sabha Secretariat, nominations for proposals supporting the candidates can be submitted till noon a day before.

Who can become the speaker of the Lok Sabha?

According to media reports, JDU and TDP have demanded the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. However, a senior leader dismissed these media reports and said, NDA allies JDU and TDP have not demanded the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. This matter will first be considered internally and then consensus will be reached by discussing with the allies. However, JDU and TDP do not seem to be unanimous on this issue. While Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's TDP says that NDA allies should decide the candidate unanimously, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JDU has said that they will support BJP's decision.

JDU leader KC Tyagi has said that both his party and TDP are part of NDA and will support the candidate nominated by BJP for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. He said, 'The speaker always belongs to the ruling party as it has the highest number of members among the coalition parties.

Meanwhile, TDP national spokesperson Pattabhi Ram Kommareddy told the Indian Express that the NDA allies should decide the candidate together. He said, 'The NDA allies will sit together and decide who will be our candidate for the speaker. Once a consensus is reached, we will field that candidate and all the allies including TDP will support that candidate.'

How and when will the Lok Sabha Speaker be elected?

According to the information, the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha will begin from June 24. During this session, MPs will be sworn in and the Speaker will also be elected. BJP will contact the opposition parties so that the Speaker can be elected unanimously. If the opposition agrees to the government's proposal, there will be no need for elections. On the other hand, if the opposition also fields its candidate, voting for the new Speaker can be held on June 26 and the new Speaker can take charge on the same day.

Let us tell you that in the first term of the Modi government, Indore MP and BJP leader Sumitra Mahajan was the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, while in the second term, BJP MP from Kota, Rajasthan, Om Birla was made the Speaker.

Why are there obstacles in the post of Speaker this time?

In 2014 and 2019, BJP had absolute majority. In such a situation, they did not have any problem in making their own speaker. But this time BJP is far from majority on its own. In such a situation, the government has been formed with the support of other NDA allies including JDU and TDP. It is being speculated that both TDP and JDU are demanding the post of speaker. If any suggestion or demand comes from the allies regarding this post, then BJP will consider a new formula.
