Newly elected LS Speaker Om Birla meets VP Venkaiah Naidu

Newly elected Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla met Vice President Venkaiah Naidu at his residence on Wednesday.

VP Naidu congratulated Birla on his election and presented a bouquet to him upon his arrival, followed by a meeting.

Earlier today, after being unanimously elected as Lok Sabha Speaker, he said he would perform his duties without bias and not take any sides.

Talking to reporters, he said his appointment to the post came with its own fair share of responsibilities which he would try to fulfill in the days to come.

"Will have to take forward everyone together while keeping the integrity of the House intact, it is very important to do so and that is what I will try to do in the days ahead," Birla said.

He assured parties that he would work in an "unbiased" fashion without taking any sides while serving in the Lok Sabha.
