  • Naidu Visits Raj Ghat All Set to Take Oath as Vice President Today			 0					By		mainlogin

Naidu said he was given important responsibility under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "Your diplomatic insights were invaluable, especially when I discussed with you before and after my bilateral visits. But what passes between the Vice-President and the PM in the nature of things must remain in the domain of privileged information". "There may have been some struggle within you [all these years], but from now onwards, you will not have to face this dilemma. There will be a feeling of freedom to work, think and an opportunity to explain your view as per your fundamental thinking", Modi said. "Your life has been that of a career diplomat", Modi said in the Rajya Sabha where the vice-president is ex-officio chairperson.

He suggested that Ansari should write a book on how the functioning of the Rajya Sabha could be made more effective and the institution "even more credible". Your paternal grandfather as well as maternal grandfather happened to be presidents of Congress and also served as members of the Constituent Assembly.

Ansari was heavily criticised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for abruptly adjourning the Rajya Sabha on December 30, 2011. You were amidst same kind of environment, thoughts and debates of same kind of people. President Ram Nath Kovind will administer Naidu the oath of office & secrecy. Naidu termed Ansari's parting comments as "political propaganda".

"[There is] no better country than India for Muslims and no better friend than Hindus", said BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain.


Jaitley, who had been the Leader of Opposition during the UPA regime, said Ansari's anguish was often visible when the House got disrupted.

On the decision of the courts on making the National Anthem mandatory in cinemas and the Madras High Court making the singing of Vande Matram compulsory, Ansari said these reflected the mood of the nation.

Targeting the outgoing vice-president for his comments, the BJP said such a "petty" remark was not expected from someone in his position. He will also be the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha. Recalling his long association and his first memories of Ansari, Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad referred to their mutual love for golf.

"Honorable Prime Minister has asserted time and again that he will protect the minorities, but the words haven't been filtered into action as yet", he said.
