Hyderabad: The Telugu Desam Party today congratulated the veteran BJP MP Sumitra ‘Tai’ Mahajan on her election as the Speaker of the Lok Sabha.
“Known for her simplicity and humble nature, Sumitra Mahajan is one of the most honest politicians in the country,” TDP said in a statement.
“Under the leadership of a woman who never lost an election and who has such a clean record, the House will run in the direction of fulfilling the aspirations of the people,” it said.
Mahajan has never lost a Lok Sabha election since being elected from Indore for the first time in 1989. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, she won by a margin of 4.67 lakh votes, highest in Madhya Pradesh.
