The National Democratic Alliance's (NDA) dilemma over the selection of the Lok Sabha speaker for the Lower House of Parliament is unlikely to end soon. On Sunday, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut called the newly formed government “weak” and said the fight for the Lok Sabha speaker is crucial, as it has left the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a fix.

Raut said that if the saffron party does not get the post of Lok Sabha speaker, it will break other parties like the TDP, JDU, and LJP.

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Chandrababu Naidu has also asked for the Lok Sabha speaker's seat. Sanjay Raut stated that in case the BJP does not support Naidu's demand, the INDIA bloc will fully back the TDP's candidate for the post.

“This fight for the Lok Sabha Speaker is important. This time, the situation is not similar to that in 2014 and 2019. The government is not stable. We have heard that Chandrababu Naidu has asked for the Lok Sabha Speaker post," Sanjay Raut told ANI.

“If Chandrababu Naidu doesn't get this position, then we will ensure that his candidate gets the support from the INDIA alliance,” Sanjay Raut added. 

Chandrababu Naidu reportedly wants a TDP MP to become the Lok Sabha speaker, reported the Economic Times, citing sources. Unlike the previous two Lok Sabha Elections, the BJP won 240 seats, falling short of the majority mark in these general elections.
