Digvijaya Singh Wants Laws Amended as Congress Seeks Leader of Opposition's Post in Lok Sabha

After such a bad perfomance and the people of India not even wanting them in minority these congressis are still eyeing the leader of opposition post
Why did they not amend the law when Rajiv Gandhi won with a trumping majority in 1985 ?

Digvijaya Singh Wants Laws Amended as Congress Seeks Leader of Opposition's Post in Lok Sabha

As the Congress eyes the post of Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, senior party leader Digvijaya Singh has said laws should be amended.

"To hold LoP position 55 seats are required so the law needs to be amended," Mr Singh said today.

"That's not in my domain, that's in the Speaker's domain," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said.

On Thursday, Mallikarjun Kharge, who heads the Congress in the Lok Sabha, led a delegation of UPA partners to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to urge her to grant the Leader of the Opposition's post to the alliance on the ground that it was "pre-poll" combination.

The Lok Sabha Speaker is expected to give her ruling on the position before the commencement of the Budget Session of Parliament on July 7. There are strong indications that Ms Mahajan, 71, will go strictly by the rule book before taking a call on demands by the Congress and its alliance partners to designate one of their members as the Leader of the Opposition.

Rules governing the appointment of the Leader of the Opposition and past precedence, according to sources in the Lok Sabha Secretariat, render the Congress ineligible for staking claim to the post. According to rules, a party must have at least 10% of the total strength of the Lok Sabha, or 55 MPs, to be considered eligible for the position.

In the 16th Lok Sabha, the Congress has 44 MPs, and 59 along with its allies. That, according to these sources, makes it difficult for the Lok Sabha speaker to accede to the Congress' demand.

The sources also cite past precedence. There was no Leader of the Opposition in 1984, when the Rajiv Gandhi-led Congress won a thumping majority in the Lok Sabha. The Congress cornered 404 of the 543 seats, and the largest Opposition party was CPM, with 22 seats.

The Speaker's decision is likely to have a direct bearing on the selection process for the posts of the Lokpal, Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC), and the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC). The Leader of the Opposition is part of the collegium formed for filling up these posts.
