Asaduddin Owaisi Took Oath in Urdu

New Delhi: Chants of "Jai Shri Ram" and "Vande Mataram" greeted All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday as he took oath as member of the 17th Lok Sabha, and he responded with "Allahu Akbar".

As the Hyderabad MP approached the Speaker's podium, some of the members, apparently from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), began shouting the slogans.

Owaisi, however, remained unperturbed, and rather mocked the members by gesturing to them to keep shouting.

After taking his oath in Urdu, Owaisi, who had earlier won the Best Parliamentarian Award by the Lok Sabha, said: "Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Takbeer Allahu Akbar, Jai Hind."

"Today, I was welcomed with some slogans when I stood up to take my oath on the Constitution of India," Asaduddin Owaisi, who won the Lok Sabha polls consecutively for 4th term, later wrote on Twitter.

Most of the MPs took oath in Hindi, some also in Sanskrit. Most of the Muslim MPs including Azam Khan, Shafeequr Rahman Burq, and Kunwar Danish Ali took oath in Urdu.

However, Imtiyaz Jaleel, Owaisi's party colleague and MP from Maharashtra's Aurangabad, took oath in Marathi.

The first session of the 17th Lok Sabha began on Monday with pro tem Speaker Virendra Singh administering the oath to members. According to the rules, Singh called MPs from different states in alphabetical orders.

Congress member Kodikunnil Suresh from Kerala surprised everyone by taking the oath in Hindi, triggering thumping of desks by mainly Hindi-speaking members.
