Sukhbir Singh Badal, Sunny Deol Administered Oath In Parliament

Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Punjab's Gurdaspur Sunny Deol takes oath.


New Delhi: 

Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, actor-turned politician BJP leader Sunny Deol and Aam Aadmi Party's lone MP Bhagwant Mann were among the leaders who took oath as members of 17th Lok Sabha today.

There was loud applause when BJP MP Om Birla, who is tipped to be the NDA's nominee for Lok Sabha Speaker's post, entered the House and when he got up to take oath.

IUDF leader Badruddin Ajmal and former Union ministers Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Preneet Kaur and Shashi Tharoor were also administered oath on the second day of the maiden session.

Dressed in jeans, white shirt and blazer, Mr Deol took oath in English amid cheers and slogans of "Bharat Mata ki Jai" from the treasury benches.

There was a slip of tongue by the BJP MP from Gurdaspur when he said "withhold the sovereignty and integrity of the country" instead of "uphold the sovereignty and integrity of the country", but he quickly rectified it.

There was also some banter between Aam Aadmi Party's Mr Mann and members of treasury benches after he ended his oath with the slogan "Inqalab Zindabad".

Mr Badal concluded his oath with Sikh religious chant of "Wahe Guruji ka Khalsa, Wahe Guruji de Fateh."

Mr Tharoor was absent on Monday when other members from Kerala, including Rahul Gandhi, took oath.

The maiden session of 17th Lok Sabha commenced on Monday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah and Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari among prominent members who took oath on the first day.
