If there is no numerical strength then what is the point of this game?

For the first time after 1976, elections were held for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. The National Democratic Alliance had the majority. Om Birla was elected by voice vote. Congress’s Suresh was fielded by India Alliance against Birla. The opposition claimed the post of Vice President. But there was no consensus on this. After this, several rounds of meetings were held between the two factions but nothing came out of it. Why did the opposition fill the application when it did not have the strength? This question is still troubling many people. What is the inside story behind this game?

Dissatisfaction over not getting the post of Vice President

The tradition of giving the post of Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha to the opposition has been going on for a long time. But for the last few years, there has been no consensus between the opposition and the government on the post of Vice President. The picture is that the government is not in favor of giving the post of Vice President to the opposition. The government had made preparations to conduct the election of the Lok Sabha Speaker unopposed. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju advocated for this. But nothing happened.

unity of opposition

Rahul Gandhi made it clear in the Lok Sabha that Bharat Aghadi, the opposition is the voice of India and the opposition is in a strong position at this time. He raised this issue on the basis of Musandi killed by the opposition in the Lok Sabha elections. He somehow showed that there is unity in the opposition. He gave the message that the Center cannot act arbitrarily for five years. Many political experts say that this is Rahul Gandhi’s attempt to brighten his image as the leader of the opposition party.

stand by the party’s decision

A. Suresh’s statement regarding candidature has become more discussed. ‘I have filed my nomination papers. This is the party’s decision. Not mine. It is a tradition in Lok Sabha that the post of Speaker is with the incumbent and the post of Deputy Speaker is with the opposition. The post of Vice President is our right. We are not ready to give it up. We waited for the government’s response, but they did not respond, so we filed the nomination papers.’
