Lok Sabha session updates: The Lok Sabha will witness a rare election for the Speaker's post – the first since 1976 – as Congress member Kodikunnil Suresh has been made the opposition candidate against NDA nominee Om Birla. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said Defence Minister Rajnath Singh failed to give an assurance on the opposition party’s claim to the Deputy Speaker's post. While elections to the Speaker's post were common before Independence, the position of the presiding officer of the Lok Sabha has witnessed contests only thrice in Independent India – in 1952, 1967 and 1976. On Tuesday, as the Congress nominated eight-term member Kodikunnil Suresh for the Lok Sabha Speaker's post, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju appealed to the opposition to reconsider its decision.

    Kiren Rijiju calls INDIA bloc's nomination for Speaker 'disheartening'

    After the I.N.D.I.A bloc nominated its candidate for the Lok Sabha Speaker post, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju said the Speaker is not for a party; it is for the functioning of the House, and it is disheartening that Congress has nominated one. "We had a conversation with all the floor leaders of the opposition regarding the post of speaker. The Speaker is not for a party, it is for the functioning of the House. The Speaker is elected unanimously. It is disheartening that Congress has nominated its candidate for Speaker. No election has ever taken place for the post of Speaker. Congress put this condition in place: if they get the post of Deputy Speaker, they will support our candidate for the Speaker's post. This give and take of posts of the Speaker and Deputy Speaker is not right," Rijiju said.

    Sharad Pawar advocates fair distribution of Speaker and Deputy Speaker roles

    Sharad Pawar said, "To tell you the truth, I haven't discussed this with anyone. It's always been a practice that the Speaker's post belongs to the ruling party. The Deputy Speaker's post used to go to the opposition, but in the last 10 years of the Modi government, they have not accepted giving the opposition the Deputy Speaker's post despite getting more seats. In our discussions with the India Alliance, I have suggested that the government should conduct the Speaker's election without opposition, there is consensus in opposition. Give this message to the government. Along with this, I have also suggested that the opposition should also get the post of Deputy Speaker. Today this matter may be settled, but I do not know what the final decision will be. I will know after going."

    Sanjay Singh questions TDP and JDU decisions on Speaker nomination

    Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh has raised concerns regarding the decisions of TDP and JDU in the context of the Lok Sabha Speaker nomination. Singh stated, "In my opinion, this is a matter of concern for both the NDA and INDIA alliances. Today, TDP and JDU might not realize it, but the same BJP has toppled governments in 6-7 states. TDP's six Rajya Sabha MPs were absorbed by BJP. If NDA allies still allow BJP to nominate the Speaker, the consequences are foreseeable."
