Veteran Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and sitting MP from Indore Sumitra Mahajan on Thursday said that she was not aware of any move afoot to make her the Speaker of new Lok Sabha.

"No one has spoken to me about making me the next Lok Sabha Speaker," Mahajan told PTI in Bhopal.

The MP, who is representing Indore for the eighth term, said that she had read about the speculations regarding her likely appointment only in newspaper reports.

According to unconfirmed reports,BJP patriarch Lal Krishna Advani was in the reckoning to become new Speaker.

Mahajan, however, said that "everything will be clear on June 6".

In a related development, the Central government on Wednesday conveyed the recommendation to President Pranab Mukherjee to appoint senior Congress leader Kamal Nath as Protem Speaker in the new Lok Sabha.
