Congress MP Rahul Gandhi has been appointed as the LoP (Leader of Opposition) in the Lok Sabha, said Congress general secretary KC Venugopal.

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi took oath as MP in the 18th Lok Sabha.

Rahul contested and won from both the Rae Bareli and Wayanad Lok Sabha seats. However, he vacated the Wayanad seat and chose the Rae Bareli seat as one MP can represent only one Lok Sabha constituency.

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge posted, "In the 18th Lok Sabha, the House of the People shall truly reflect the aspirations of the last person standing, with Rahul Gandhi becoming their voice. As Congress President, I am confident that a leader who has traversed the length and breadth of the country from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, and from Manipur to Maharashtra shall raise the voice of the people โ€” especially the marginalised and the poor..."

BJP Mocks Rahul's Appointment

The BJP mocked Congress party for Rahul's appointment as the Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha.

"On the eve of I.N.D.I Allianceโ€™s first defeat (in the 18th Lok Sabha) on the floor of the House, Congress has announced Third Time Fail Rahul Gandhi as the Leader of Opposition. Something surreal about the impeccable timing," posted BJP's Amit Malviya.
