    Akhilesh Yadav congratulated Om Birla

    I hope that you would respect the Opposition: Akhilesh

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament (MP) Om Birla was reappointed as the Speaker of the Lok Sabha after a voice vote. He faced competition from K. Suresh of the Indian National Congress (INC) who is an 8-time MP. Leaders of Indian National Democratic Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc congratulated him after his appointment. “I congratulate you and extend to you best wishes on behalf of all my colleagues. The post that you are occupying has glorious traditions attached to it. We believe that this will continue without any discrimination and as Lok Sabha Speaker you will give equal opportunities and respect to every member and party,” former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party (SP) said.

INDIA bloc leaders however also made indirect references to the suspension of 146 MPs in the previous term. The incident had occurred after the attack on the parliament in December 2023 as the opposition leaders demanded a statement on the incident from Home Minister Amit Shah. “Impartiality is a great responsibility of this great position… We expect that no public representative’s voice will be stifled, nor will an action like expulsion take place again. Your control is on the Opposition but it should be on the ruling side too. The House should function on your signals and not the other way round. I hope that you would respect the Opposition as much as you respect the ruling dispensation and let them present their side,” Akhilesh added.
