As Rahul finished his swearing-in, the Opposition benches raised slogans and welcomed him back into the benches.

Lok Sabha Speaker Election on June 26

BJP’s Om Birla and Congress’ Kodikunnil Suresh will take each other head on in the Speaker election for the first time since Independence. The polling will take place in Lok Sabha tomorrow after the NDA and INDIA blocs failed to reach a consensus for the post of Deputy Speaker. The Opposition demanded the latter post stating that there has been a convention of the Deputy Speaker office going to the Opposition. After the Opposition's talks with Rajnath Singh, who the BJP entrusted to hold negotiations with the other side, remained inconclusive, election of the Speaker of Lok Sabha became a necessity.
