Owaisi, who has been elected from the Hyderabad seat for his fifth term, took oath in Urdu. He also recited a prayer before taking the oath. He concluded his oath with slogans-- "Jai Bhim, Jai Meem, Jai Telangana, Jai Palestine."

BJP leader Om Birla, who has been nominated for the speaker's post, also took oath on Tuesday. When Birla, who was also the speaker in the 17th Lok Sabha, came to take his oath, Radha Mohan Singh, who was in the chair, stood up and greeted him.

While a majority of the MPs from Odisha took oath in Odia, except Malvika Devi and Pradeep Kumar Panigrahy, MPs from Punjab took oath in Punjabi with many from the Congress and AAP holding copies of the Constitution.

Some of the MPs raised "Jai Hind", "Jai Maharashtra", "Jai Bheem" and "Jai Shivaji" slogans after taking oath

On at least one occasion, the pro-tem speaker reminded members not to deviate from the prescribed oath and read aloud only what was written on the paper they had been given.
