Birla would be replacing previous Lok Sabha Speaker, Sumitra Mahajan, who had chosen not to contest the 2019 general elections.

Earlier, names of PP Chaudhary, the ex-Union Minister of State for the Law and Justice and the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Surinderjeet Singh Ahluwalia, MP from Durgapur Lok Sabha Constituency, West Bengal, also did the rounds but the party high command went ahead with Birla.

Meanwhile, Om Birla’s wife, Amita Birla, while speaking to ANI thanked the party for the trust bestowed upon her husband. “It is a very proud and a happy moment for us. We are very thankful to the cabinet for choosing him,” she said.

On Monday, President Ram Nath Kovind swore in the seven-term member of Parliament Virendra Kumar as the protem speaker of Lok Sabha.

Protem Speaker Virendra Kumar had then subsequently administered the oath of office to over 300 MPs on Monday.
