  • President Ram Nath Kovind administering the oath of office and secrecy to Venkaiah Naidu as India's Vice President in the Durbar Hall of Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi on Friday

"Observing you, I saw mannerisms of a career diplomat". He served as Rajya Sabha Chairman for 10 years from 2007 to 2017.

Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh described Mr Ansari as friend, philosopher and guide and said his statesmanship guided the country for a long time. But from now onwards, you will not face that difficulty. "But now that you have been liberated, you will have the happy feeling of freedom and you will get an opportunity to work, think and talk according to your basic ideology and instinct".

Speaking to ANI, JDU leader Tyagi said, "Ansari's statement has hurt the sentiments of the people". "I hope you will continue to guide the nation in moving forward on the path laid down by the Constitution", he added, while joking that Ansari has kept himself physically fit.

In hard-hitting remarks during an interview to Rajya Sabha TV, he ascribed the spate of vigilante violence, mob lynchings, beef bans and "Ghar Wapsi" campaigns to a "breakdown of Indian values" and to the "breakdown of the ability of the authorities" to enforce the law.

After Narendra Modi took the reins of the Party in New Delhi, Venkaiah Naidu was moved to the cabinet for his brilliance. "He is making such inappropriate comments now because he is leaving the office and is in search of a political role". It's only source of reference is the book of rules, said Ansari.

Without actually naming Mr Ansari, the vice-president-elect dismissed the view that there was a sense of insecurity among minorities, saying this was nothing but "political propaganda".

"As Dr Radhakrishnan said, "a democracy is distinguished by the protection it gives to minorities".

But dealing with the political fraternity was a different experience all together", Jaitley said, praising how well Ansari did the job which "is very challenging for the reasons that this House unlike in the 1950s and 1960s now has a changed character". "PM Modi said that we should make the "Swachh Bharat Abhiyan" as a national movement and should be made a political agenda", former urban development minister said.

On his tenure as the presiding officer of the Rajya Sabha, he said there were purposeful exchanges in the House that did not result in animosity.

Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad also wished Ansari the best and said he was grateful to the "best" Chairman compared to the others.
