Solution

The correct option is D 1 and 3 only

Explanation:

The Deputy Speaker who presides over the House in the absence of the Speaker is elected in the same manner in which the Speaker is elected by the House. He can be removed from office also in the same manner. When he sits in the seat of the Speaker, he has all the powers of the Speaker and can perform all his functions

Statement 1 is Correct: The deputy speaker is elected by the Lok Sabha from amongst its members; he is elected after the election of speaker has taken place. The date of election of the deputy speaker is fixed by the speaker.

Statement 2 is incorrect: Office of deputy speaker is not subordinate to Speaker and is directly responsible to the house of people

Statement 3 is Correct: One of his special privileges as deputy speaker is that when he is appointed as a member of a Parliamentary Committee, he automatically becomes its Chairman. The Deputy Speaker, however, is otherwise like any ordinary member when the Speaker presides over the House. He may speak like any other member, maintain his party affiliation and vote on propositions before the House as an ordinary member.
