Government May Not Fill Post of Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker

NEW DELHI: As uncertainty over the appointment of the deputy speaker post of the Lok Sabha continues, sources indicate that the government is unlikely to move in this direction soon. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is keeping its cards close to its chest regarding whether it will retain the post or allocate it to an INDIA bloc candidate.

Key Points:

  • Panel of Chairpersons:
    • Speaker Om Birla has appointed a panel of chairpersons to assist in running House proceedings.
    • The panel includes Jagdambika Pal (BJP), P C Mohan (BJP), Sandhya Ray (BJP), Dilip Saikia (BJP), Kumari Selja (Congress), A Raja (DMK), Dr. Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar (TMC), Krishna Prasad Tenneti (TDP), and Awadhesh Prasad (SP).
    • Speculation suggests that the INDIA bloc has reached a consensus on fielding Awadhesh Prasad, the Faizabad MP, for the deputy speaker post.
    • If the INDIA bloc nominates Prasad, the BJP may find it challenging to oppose.
  • Opposition’s Message:
    • By proposing Awadhesh Prasad, the Opposition aims to send a message to Dalit voters in Uttar Pradesh.
    • The government may hesitate to oppose Prasad’s candidature to avoid conveying the wrong message.

The situation remains fluid, and further developments are awaited.
