On the third day of the session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to be tested due to the strong opposition Bharat Alliance. Due to lack of consensus with the opposition on the post of Lok Sabha Speaker, India Alliance also fielded its candidate. So once again the contest is between Om Birla from BJP and K Suresh of Congress from Bharat Aghadi. Why is it now the time for election for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker i.e. President?

BJP requested Congress to cooperate for the post of President. Congress agreed to cooperate with BJP but demanded the post of Vice President. Till 2019, there was a tradition of giving the post of Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha to the opposition. But in 2019, Modi refused to give the post of Vice President to the opposition. Now in 2024, the opposition is also aggressive due to the strengthening of the figure of Bharat Aghadi.

BJP leader and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh says that Congress President Mallikarjun called Kharge 3 times. Then Rahul Gandhi said that he will call him from the post of Deputy Speaker. But after that his call did not come. Now it has been decided that the election for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker will be held at 11 am. Now if we look at the numbers, the majority is with Modi and NDA.

BJP has 240 MPs. Chandrababu’s TDP has 16 MPs. Nitish Kumar’s JDU has 12 MPs, Shinde’s Shiv Sena has 7 MPs, LJP has 5 MPs and other small parties have 13 MPs. In this respect, the strength of NDA is 293 MPs.

If we look at the strength of Bharat Aghadi, 99 MPs of Congress and Sangli’s independent MP Vishal Patal have also supported Congress, that is, Congress has 100 MPs. Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party has 37 MPs, Mamta’s Trinamool Congress has 29 MPs, M.K. Stalin’s DMK has 22 MPs, Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena has 9 MPs, Sharad Pawar’s NCP has 8 MPs, RJD has 4 MPs and other small parties have 26 MPs, in total there are 235 MPs.

Those who are no longer part of the NDA or Bharat Bandh include 4 MPs from Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress, 1 MP from Shiromani Akali Dal, Asaduddin Owaisi MP from MIM, 1 MP from ZPM, 1 MP from Azad Samaj Party and 1 MP from Voice of People’s Party. The total number was 9 and independents 6, making a total of 15 other contestants.

Now suppose that Bharat is not in the leadership but is on the opposition benches. If those 15 MPs support Bharat Aghadi, then the strength of Bharat Aghadi will be 250 MPs. If this happens, it will be seen that the opposition is 2500. NDA has a majority. But suppose it is the other way round. Then Modi will get a big shock.

Of course, TDP and JDU will take a different stand. If they suddenly take a U-turn, it will mean that the government has lost majority. But at the moment it does not seem so. If BJP had given the post of Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha to Congress, then there would have been no need for election for the post of Speaker. But Union Minister Piyush Goyal has said that he condemns such a stance of Congress.

BJP MP Om Birla has become MP for the third time. He was the Speaker of the Lok Sabha in the last Lok Sabha. Now BJP has again made him a candidate. On the other hand, Congress’ K Suresh is the working president of Kerala Congress and has been an MP for 8 times. And is senior in the current Lok Sabha.
