Not one but two meetings… Will BJP take a decision today on the post of Lok Sabha Speaker?


New Delhi: The first session of the eighteenth Lok Sabha will begin on Monday, June 24. The biggest question before the session begins is who will be the Speaker of the Lok Sabha this time. BJP has not got an absolute majority this time and in such a situation, the importance of the parties included in the NDA has increased even more. The test of the NDA has also begun before the session begins. Although no open demand has been made for this post by the NDA allies, the opposition is constantly fueling this issue. Amidst all the questions, an important meeting is going to be held at the residence of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh this evening to discuss the names of the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the Lok Sabha.will the decision be made today
The first session of the 18th Lok Sabha will begin on June 24. During this time, new members of the lower house will take oath and then the Lok Sabha Speaker will be elected on June 26. Senior BJP leaders will meet at the residence of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh here on Tuesday evening to discuss the names of candidates for the post of Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the 18th Lok Sabha. Sources gave this information. They said that some constituent parties of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are also expected to attend the meeting.

BJP will not compromise on the post of president
Even before the session begins, everyone's eyes are set on the Lok Sabha Speaker's chair. The opposition is also making preparations from its side. The BJP may have fallen short of a majority, but it wants to retain the Speaker's post in the 18th Lok Sabha. The BJP has 240 MPs and it wants to retain the Speaker's post. However, for this it will have to take the NDA allies, especially TDP and JDU, into confidence. According to sources, the BJP may offer the Deputy Speaker's post to any NDA ally.

Another meeting will be held at BJP headquarters

A separate meeting of the Maharashtra BJP core group will be held at the party headquarters this evening to discuss the party's strategy for the assembly elections in Maharashtra later this year. Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, party state president Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Ashish Shelar, MP Ashok Chavan, minister Girish Mahajan and other leaders are expected to attend the meeting, to be chaired by BJP president JP Nadda. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP general secretary (organisation) BL Santosh are also expected to be present at the meeting.
