New Delhi: After the results of the recent Lok Sabha elections, the reflection of the changed political equations in the country's politics was clearly and strongly seen in the Lok Sabha on Monday. This time the opposition, which managed to make a place in the House with a good number, appeared cautious and aggressive from the beginning of the first day, while it also made it clear through its attitude that it will not show any leniency towards the government or the ruling party on the issues. The opposition, which was limited to only two benches in the 17th Lok Sabha, had now spread to the seats of the fourth bench. The way the leaders of both the parties made the ruling party and the opposition realize their strength and strategy by sitting on their respective seats, the strategy and intentions of both the parties were becoming clear to a large extent. It was worth noting that while the opposition appeared very cautious and vocal in the House on the first day, the ruling party appeared relatively calm and restrained. Except for one or two MPs, most of the MPs sitting on the BJP bench appeared calm.

The first line of opposition was special
From the ruling party, PM Modi, Union Minister Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah and Nitin Gadkari were seen on the first bench and row with PM Modi, which somehow reflected the status of ministers in the Modi government, while on the other hand, from the opposition, Congress' Rahul Gandhi, K Suresh, TMC's Kalyan Banerjee, SP leader Akhilesh Yadav and SP MP from Faizabad (Ayodhya) Awadhesh Prasad were seen sitting on the first bench. Akhilesh Yadav was seen constantly making Awadhesh Prasad sit with him in the House on Monday. By making Prasad sit with the first line leaders, the opposition has tried to give a direct message to the ruling party. In fact, the way the BJP worked on the strategy of taking credit for the Ram temple in the elections after the Ram temple worship earlier this year, after that the opposition is constantly looking at the defeat of BJP from Faizabad in the recent elections as its big victory, especially a symbolic victory. In such a situation, by making Awadhesh Prasad sit in the first row, the opposition tried to underline that victory. Avdhesh Prasad has been seen as the successful face of the opposition's joint strategy in UP. He has played a big role not only on the BJP's symbol Ram Mandir but also in the BJP's victory. This is the reason why the opposition tried to give him such a prominent place in the House.

The aggressive stance of the opposition was seen on the very first day
The aggressive stance of the opposition was seen in the inaugural program on the first day itself, when the Protem Speaker announced the panel and told the order of oath, the opposition leaders immediately stood up and started protesting openly. The opposition was constantly accusing the government of ignoring parliamentary decorum. Not only this, the opposition clearly refused to be a part of this panel. However, signs of confrontation on this issue had already started appearing, when the opposition started raising questions on making seven-time MP Bhartruhari Mahtab the Protem Speaker. On Monday, when the panel members were to take oath, the three opposition members included in the panel, Congress's K Suresh, DMK's TR Balu and TMC's Sudip Bandopadhyay refused to take the oath. Not only this, Suresh and Balu walked out of the House during that time.

Two stages were arranged for the oath taking ceremony
This time two podiums have been arranged for the oath taking ceremony. One has been placed on the side of the ruling party and the other on the side of the opposition. The opposition members protested against it in strong words, complaining to Mehtab, who was present on the chair. The opposition said that you have divided the House itself. This is wrong. It is clear from the sharp attitude of the opposition that this time it is not only closely monitoring every step, every move and every decision of the government, but will also oppose it unitedly in time. The way the opposition was seen criticizing the government somewhere, opposing somewhere, cornering somewhere and joking with the constituent parties somewhere in the House on the first day, it is clear that the opposition will jointly formulate its strategy in the House by making proper coordination. Whether it is to show copies of the Constitution to PM Modi and Amit Shah or cornering Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on NEET or joking with the constituent parties, everything reflects the preparations of the opposition.

The opposition's stance is tough even outside the houseThe interesting thing was that this coordination of the opposition was seen from inside to outside the House. When the ministers of the Modi government were taking oath, the entire opposition was seen protesting outside the House in the Parliament premises with copies of the Constitution in their hands. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and former President Sonia Gandhi were also among them. The opposition said that we will not tolerate disregard for the Constitution. At the same time, some MPs taking oath from the ruling party took oath on Monday with copies of the Constitution in their hands. Earlier, as a sign of opposition unity, all the parties of the Bharat Alliance had decided that on the first day all the MPs of the alliance would enter the House together and go to the House with a copy of the Constitution in their hands.
