Om Birla to be NDA’s nominee for LS speaker’s post: sources

New Delhi: BJP MP Om Birla is likely to be NDA’s nominee for Lok Sabha speaker’s post, sources said Tuesday.

Once nominated, Birla, who won from Kota-Bundi parliamentary seat in Rajasthan, will easily become the speaker as the National Democratic Alliance has a clear majority in the House.

If necessary, the election for the post may be held on Wednesday.

Amita Birla, wife of BJP MP Om Birla, who reportedly is the NDA candidate for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker said, “it is a very proud and a happy moment for us. We are very thankful to the cabinet for choosing him”.
