According to sources, BJP MP Maneka from Lok Sabha will be the first speaker in the programme. After Maneka Gandhi, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been approached to tackle the function. However, the former prime minister has not been well for some time and may not be present. The ceremony will also feature a speech by senior MP Shibu Soren, who has more experience in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha combined than any other member. Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha Piyush Goyal, Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House Mallikarjun Kharge and Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury will also address the ceremony.
