The Rajya Sabha Deputy chairman elections result reflected the trust and belief of the members towards the Modi govt. The NDA candidate won the election and Modi smashed the allegations and said: “This time, both sides in this election had a ‘Hari’ (Harivansh Narayan and BK Hariprasad) but one had a BK, koi nahi bike”.
The Congress had been blaming BJP for Rafale deal and it had even challenged for the victory in the Rajya Sabha Elections.
The Harivash Narayan Singh JDU-MP was nominated by the BJP whereas Hari Prasad was from Joint Opposition.
Mr Harivash grabbed the post with 125 ayes whereas Hari Prasad lost the battle with 105 votes.
After the announcement of the new Deputy Chairman, PM Modi congratulated Harivash Singh and said “I congratulate Harivansh ji on behalf of the whole house. He has been blessed with the talent of writing. He was also a favourite of former PM Chandra Shekhar ji,”
Prime Minister also praised the contribution of the newly elected Deputy in the field of writing and politics.
The Deputy Chairman post was lying vacant since the retirement of PJ Kurien.
The Leader of House Arun Jaitley was present for the time after the kidney transplant. He congratulated the new deputy and said that he expects he expects the level of public discourse would be elevated manifold during Harivash’s working period.
The newly elected deputy chairman received wishes from opposition leaders- Ghulam Nabi Azad, AIADMK MPs and TMC leader Derek O’Brien.
Modi-led Party has been tolerating the indictments made by the oppositions but its second time when BJP showed its standard and level. The BJP govt. has been sailing the cruise of development and growth of country but spineless allegations obstruct the path.
Modi’s Party is trying to reach out every section of society to make people aware of the schemes and policies made for them. It is even celebrating ‘social justice fortnight’ in the month of August.
