Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Smt. Sumitra Mahajan on being unanimously elected as the Speaker of the 16th Lok Sabha. The PM had proposed Smt. Sumitra Mahajan’s name for the high office.

Speaking on the occasion, the PM stated that it was indeed a matter of pride for everyone that a woman was guiding the proceedings of the Lok Sabha. He said that the new Speaker’s name – Su + Mitra – itself reflected friendship and trust, and that her vast experience of many years of public life, and of having been an MP for 8 times, would prove to be an asset. He added that the new Speaker’s guidance would prove to be valuable in taking the Nation forward.

The PM also said that, similar to the 1st Lok Sabha when all members were first timers, in this 16th Lok Sabha too, there were over 315 members who were first time MPs. He affirmed that the members of the new Lok Sabha will embrace new customs and fulfill people’s aspirations under the leadership of Smt. Sumitra Mahajan.

The PM also introduced the Council of Ministers to the Lok Sabha.
