At a time when India marks Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, we are proud to be having a Kisan Putra Vice President: PM Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi:

Congratulations to Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar Ji on being elected India’s Vice President with resounding support across party lines.

I am confident he will be an outstanding Vice President.

Our nation will gain tremendously from his intellect and wisdom.

I thank all those MPs who have voted for Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar Ji.

At a time when India marks Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, we are proud to be having a Kisan Putra Vice President who has excellent legal knowledge and intellectual prowess.

I have known Jagdeep Dhankhar for many years… I hope he will display the sagacity & objectivity of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and the wit & humour of Venkaiah Naidu: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, General Secretary, Congress:

I have known Jagdeep Dhankhar for many years, and last year he presided over an online function on my book on the Buddha.

I hope he will display the sagacity and objectivity of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and the wit and humour of Venkaiah Naidu, his partymen who became VP.

According to National Crime Records Bureau data, 76% of all prisoners are under trials: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

According to NCRB data, 76% of all prisoners are under trials

Of the under trials, 27% are illiterate, 41% had dropped out before Class X

What does this mean? That most under trial prisoners are poor and most likely from among the oppressed classes

The legal system is so distorted that only the poor languish in jail without a trial and without bail

In J&K, the proportion of under trials is 91%. I am certain most of them are in prison on charges — yet unproved — of instigating or indulging in violence

Let’s see if the latest SC order will bring relief to these poor, hapless prisoners

Congratulations to Mr Dhankhar on being elected Vice President! ; Margaret Alva

Margaret Alva – Candidate for post of VP:

Congratulations to Mr Dhankhar on being elected Vice President!

I would like to thank all the leaders of the Opposition, and MPs from across parties who voted for me in this election.

Also, all the volunteers for their selfless service during our short but intense campaign.

This election was an opportunity for the opposition to work together, to leave the past behind & build trust amongst each other.

Unfortunately, some opposition parties chose to directly or indirectly support the BJP, in an attempt to derail the idea of a united opposition.

It is my belief that by doing so, these parties and their leaders have damaged their own credibility.

This election is over. The battle for protecting our Constitution, strengthening our democracy & restoring the dignity of Parliament, will continue.

Jai Hind.

After this exchange with Shri Nitin Gadkari on March 22nd, I got myself a Tata Nexon EV: Jairam Ramesh

After this exchange with Shri Nitin Gadkari on March 22nd, I got myself a Tata Nexon EV.

I firmly believe India should put an end to manufacturing of all types of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2035 at the very least, and massively bring down the cost of EVs.
