New Delhi: Earlier, there was a fierce battle between the ruling party and the opposition for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. Now the opposition parties have intensified their claim for the post of Deputy Speaker. India Block is planning to declare Samajwadi Party MP from Faizabad Awadhesh Prasad as the candidate for the post of Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha. This alliance includes Trinamool Congress, Samajwadi Party and Congress. 78-year-old Awadhesh Prasad comes from the Dalit community and has won from an important seat like Ayodhya. Earlier there were reports that Congress wants to make eight-time MP from Kerala K. Suresh a candidate for this post.

Strategy is being made in TMC, SP and Congress

According to sources, Trinamool General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee, SP President Akhilesh Yadav and Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi have discussed this matter. Other allies may also be talked to about this. According to sources, the idea of ​​​​nominating Awadhesh Prasad was of West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Chief Mamata Banerjee. She told this to her nephew Abhishek. All three parties feel that Faizabad MP Awadhesh Prasad will be a different kind of candidate and his candidature will send a strong message. He has won by more than 50 thousand votes.

Why has Avdhesh Prasad become so important in Akhilesh Yadav's agenda? Understand the whole strategy

Mamta suggested the name of Awadhesh Prasad

Speaking to Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav, Abhishek Banerjee said the selection of the India Alliance candidate for the post of vice president should send a 'strong message'. Since the India Alliance is weak in terms of numbers, he focused on symbolism. A Trinamool MP said that the India Alliance will contest for the post of vice president. In the remaining three days of this session or even later… we will collectively demand the post. Consensus is being built on possible candidates.

This is not the first time that the Lok Sabha Speaker is being elected, know when the voting for the Speaker's chair was held

There was no Deputy Speaker in the 17th Lok Sabha

Article 93 of the Constitution states that the Lok Sabha shall elect two of its members as Speaker and Deputy Speaker. The 17th Lok Sabha was the first Lok Sabha after Independence that did not have a Deputy Speaker. On being asked what would happen if the NDA does not accept the Opposition's proposal to elect a Deputy Speaker, the Trinamool MP said that the 17th Lok Sabha and the 18th Lok Sabha are very different. Now there is no BJP government, but an NDA government. We will continue to press strongly for the election in this session and all subsequent sessions.
