Party veteran with RSS background
His name is among the frontrunners for the coveted post. Union agriculture minister in previous Modi government, Radha Mohan Singh is a sixtime MP. Another plus factor is that he comes from the RSS background as he began his political career overseeing ABVP activities. He was also Bihar state BJP chief for three years. Party sources say dropping him from ministerial berth was done keeping Speaker’s post in mind. Though his skills to handle the House with all the nitty-grittys of rules are a little suspect, he can be the choice to meet the aggression likely to be shown by the Opposition despite thin strength.
