Minutes after veteran BJP leader Sumitra Mahajan’s unanimous election as Lok Sabha Speaker, leaders of the splintered Opposition appealed to her for quality time uninfluenced by the strength of parties in the House.

Suggesting that she is conscious of the expectations of members, Ms. Mahajan said she would be guided by her experience of 25 years in the House in her endeavour to be even with all. “It is a matter of pleasure that our Prime Minister had given indications before the declaration of the election results that he will be the Prime Minister of 125 crore Indians and he will give equal treatment to all the members of the House,” the eight-time MP from Indore said.
