Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday had a shaky start in the 17th Lok Sabha as his absence in the first session of the new Lok Sabha was noticed and he also forgot to sign the Parliament register after taking his oath.
Earlier in the day, Gandhi skipped the first session as the 17th Lok Sabha began for the first time after the general election.
He, however, tweeted after his absence was noticed in Parliament.
After the 542 MPs met for the first time, President Ram Nath Kovind started the process of administering of oath. The President administered the oath to Pro-tem Speaker Virendra Kumar, who in turn administered oaths to the other lawmakers.
Soon Prime Minister Narendra Modi took his oath as BJP MPs raised slogans of “Modi Modi”.
