The Budget presented by Union Minister Piyush Goyal on February 1 was interim in nature as it came just ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Now, with a larger mandate, the second Narendra Modi-led government is set to deliver fresh Budget for financial year 2019-20. This time, the Budget will be presented by the new Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament (MP) from Madhya Pradesh, Virendra Kumar, has been chosen as the pro-tem Speaker. Kumar, 65, is a seven-term MP and had won the Lok Sabha polls from Tikamgarh.

The pro-tem Speaker will administer oath to the newly elected Lok Sabha MPs. Kumar will also preside over the sitting in which the new Speaker is elected.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi -- as the Leader of the House-- will be the first to take oath in the new Lok Sabha. The Council of Ministers will follow PM Modi in taking the oath.

The Speaker of the Lok Sabha will be elected on June 19.

Congress, the single largest Opposition party in the Lok Sabha, is yet to name its Leader of the House. No party has won enough seats to be able to appoint a Leader of Opposition.

The triple talaq bill. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill, 2019, Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, are some of the bills that the government is likely to table. The Centre is also expected to push laws to replace around 10 ordinances during this session.
