Today is the first day of the Parliament session, opposition attacks the Protem Speaker, understand why there is a possibility of conflict

New Delhi: The first session of the 18th Lok Sabha is starting from Monday. The newly elected members will be sworn in on Monday and Tuesday. The government's priority in the first session is the election of the new Lok Sabha Speaker, oath taking of members, joint address of the President in both the houses of Parliament and discussion on the motion of thanks on it.Opposition unhappy with Protem Speaker
Senior BJP leader from Odisha and seven-time consecutive MP Bhartruhari Mahtab has been appointed as the temporary Speaker (Pro tem Speaker) of the Lok Sabha. The opposition has lodged its objection to this and said that the government has ignored the claim of eight-time Congress MP K Suresh for this post. There is also a possibility of conflict in both the houses of Parliament. It has started with the appointment of the Pro tem Speaker. Regarding the allegations of the opposition, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju has said that Mahtab is a seven-time Lok Sabha member, so he is suitable for this post. He said that Suresh was not a member in 1998 and 2004, due to which his current term is the fourth consecutive in the lower house. President Draupadi Murmu will administer the oath to Mahtab as the temporary Speaker of the Lok Sabha at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Monday.

The pro tem speaker will administer the oath
The pro tem speaker will administer the oath to the newly elected members. The President has appointed Kodikunnil Suresh (Congress), TR Baalu ​​(DMK), Radha Mohan Singh and Faggan Singh Kulaste (BJP) and Sudip Bandopadhyay (Trinamool Congress) to assist Mahtab in administering the oath to the newly elected members of the Lok Sabha. Mahtab will request the Leader of the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to administer the oath of membership of the House. The pro tem speaker will then administer the oath to the Committee of Speakers appointed by the President, which will assist him in running the proceedings of the House till the election of the Lok Sabha Speaker on June 26.

The decision of the speaker was left to BJP
The responsibility of building a consensus on the post of Lok Sabha Speaker was given to senior BJP leader and Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, who has also discussed with the allies. Sources are telling that the allies have left the decision to the BJP. Now BJP will decide. On June 27, President Draupadi Murmu will jointly address both the houses. During this, she can outline the priorities of the government for the next five years, mentioning the achievements of the Modi government in 10 years. After that, the motion of thanks on the President's address will be discussed in both the houses of Parliament, at the end of which PM Modi will reply in both the houses.

Will the current President get this post?

Many names are being discussed in political circles for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. There is also a strong discussion about making the current Speaker Om Birla the Lok Sabha Speaker again. The names of D Purandeswari and Radha Mohan Singh are also in discussion for the post of Speaker. BJP National Vice President and former Union Minister Radha Mohan Singh, who hails from Bihar, has been elected MP for the sixth time. Purandeswari is the head of the BJP state unit in Andhra Pradesh and is the daughter of former Chief Minister and actor NT Rama Rao (NTR).

Will the opposition field any candidate?
Although the Speaker has been elected unanimously, the question is whether the opposition will also field its candidate? The opposition has not clarified anything about this yet. There has also been a tradition that if the Speaker is from the ruling party, then the post of Deputy Speaker goes to the opposition. Unlike 2014 and 2019, this time BJP alone does not have the magic figure of 272. The number of NDA alliance in the House is 293, while the number of opposition camp is 232. Now it remains to be seen whether BJP gives the post of Deputy Speaker to one of its allies or any constituent party of the opposition alliance gets this post?

Why is there a possibility of conflict?
It is clear from the sharp attitude of the opposition that it is in no mood to show any leniency on all issues during this process of formal formation of the Lok Sabha. The opposition alleged that the NDA government has broken the tradition from the very beginning regarding the post of Protem Speaker. The opposition is already on the offensive regarding the NEET exam. Its effect can also be seen during the proceedings of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The opposition can also attack on issues like criminal law, railway accident. The 264th session of the Rajya Sabha will begin on June 27 and end on July 3.
