There were 13 Prime Ministers before me, but the PM’s chair in Lok Sabha has the names of only 3 of them: PM Modi

BJD MP Tathagata Satpathy revealed the plates, proving most people wrong who guessed the names

Delivering his last address to the current Lok Sabha on its last day in session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a very interesting revelation. Describing his first days in Lok Sabha, he said that when he entered the Lok Sabha for the first time as a member, he looked at the various things around the seat allocated for the Prime Minister. And to his surprise, he saw three plates were affixed below at the seat of the PM with names of three previous prime ministers who had occupied that place in past in Lok Sabha.

There were 13 prime ministers before him, but the plates at the seat of the Prime Minister in the Lok Sabha have the names of only three of them, Modi added. “Why this might have happened, what must have been the logic behind the same, great intellectuals with liberal thoughts who advise us daily will surely think about it, and sometimes enlighten us”, Narendra Modi added. The prime minister didn’t tell which three names were there, leaving people to guess.

After the revelation by the prime minister, a guessing game started on social media, and most people thought it was an easy guess. As most schemes in the country were named after Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi during the long duration of Congress rule, many people assumed that three plates must have contained the names of these three former prime ministers from the Nehru-Gandhi family.

But MP from Odisha and BJD’s chief whip in Lok Sabha Tathagata Satpathy decided to break the suspense. He clicked a photograph of the plates that Modi had referred to in his speech and posted the image of the same on Twitter.

The three plates the PM’s chair in Lok Sabha

As can be seen above, the three metal plates mention Jawaharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Indira Gandhi, mentioning from which date to which date the former prime ministers occupied the seat. Thus the plates belong to the first three prime ministers of India. If the practice was continued, the next plate would have mentioned the name of Morarji Desai, the first non-Congress prime minister of the Republic of India.
