From Vande Mataram to ‘mandir wahin banaenge’, slogans fill the air in Lok Sabha as MPs take oath



What was expected to be a sombre affair turned into one of political oneupmanship as leaders cutting across political lines tried to impose their religious and political ideologies through sloganeering and chants as newly elected members of Parliament were administered the oath of office. While some newly elected MPs chose to raise slogans of Vande Mataram, others referred to the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and raised slogans of Samajwadi Party MP Shafiqur Rahman Barq objected to chants of Vande Mataram as against Islam and cannot be followed. The MPs remarks came when Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj was taking oath and raised slogans of Jai Shri Ram before heading to his seat. #WATCH: Slogans of Vande Mataram raised in Lok Sabha after Samajwadi Partys MP Shafiqur Rahman Barq says, Jahan tak Vande Mataram ka taaluq hai, it is against Islam we cannot follow it after concluding his oath. pic.twitter.com\/8Sugg8u8ah Similarly the debate over Ram Mandir began in the Lower House of Parliament as slogans were raised in its reference. The case is being heard by the Supreme Court. #WATCH: Slogans of Mandir vahin banayenge were raised in the Lok Sabha as BJPs winning candidate from Unnao, Sakshi Maharaj took oath as a Member of Parliament, in Sanskrit, earlier today. pic.twitter.com\/Cr6IQNbXJF While he was walking to take the mike, when BJP MPs raised slogans of Bharat Mata ki Jai and Vande Mataram.

Many BJP leaders ended their oath with slogan of Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Congress president, Rahul Gandhi, while taking a dig asked BJP MP Arun Kumar Sagar to repeat one more time after he raised the slogan of Bharat Mata ki Jai twice. After Gandhi asked him to raise the slogan one more time, Sagar repeated it saying he would raise the slogan again if Gandhi completes it by chanting Jai . After this Gandhi said Jai Hind and was joined by other members of the Congress.
