BJP’s Om Birla elected as Lok Sabha Speaker, PM Modi says, ‘your warm smile brightens up the entire House’

Lok Sabha Speaker Election: BJP’s Om Birla was elected as LS Speaker. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi escorted Om Birla to the Lok Sabha Speaker’s chair. “I congratulate you on behalf of the entire House and look forward to your guidance for the next five years, ” said PM Modi. 

“Your warm smile brightens up the entire House,” Prime Minister Modi said to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

The voting for the Lok Sabha Speaker happened for the first time. The opposition broke the tradition of unanimously choosing the speaker. The opposition has put forth a condition for the deputy speaker, which is that democracy does not run on conditions. 

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi moved the motion today in the Lok Sabha to choose Om Birla as the lower house Speaker amid a tussle for the post with the opposition’s INDIA bloc.

Traditionally, the Lok Sabha Speaker and Deputy Speaker were elected through consensus between the ruling party and the opposition.

The contest for the Speaker post witnessed the BJP’s Om Birla, a three-time MP from Kota in Rajasthan, up against the Congress’ Kodikunnil Suresh, an eight-term parliamentarian from Kerala’s Mavelikara. Suresh is the longest-serving parliamentarian in the 18th Lok Sabha.
