Venkaiah Naidu to take oath as Vice President of India today”

The NDA candidate Venkaiah Naidu defeated the Opposition candidate, former diplomat Gopalkrishna Gandhi, in the elections conducted last week by a margin of 272 votes by securing 516 votes compared to 244 votes secured by Gandhi. President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan all come from BJP. Naidu will go to Raj Ghat at 8:30 AM to pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and from there he will head towards Deendayal Upadhyay Marg at 9: 00 AM.

Naidu was administered the oath of office by President Ram Nath Kovind at a simple ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

Vice President-elect Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said people were trying to use minority issues for political purposes, reported ANI.

He was minister for information and broadcasting and housing and urban affairs in the Modi government and earlier held the Parliamentary Affairs portfolio. His extensive experience in the Rajya Sabha makes him a suitable pick for the ex-officio chairman of the Rajya Sabha. He did Bachelor's in politics and diplomatic studies from V R College, Nellore. He actively participated in the famous Jai Andhra Movement in 1972. He was elected the first time between July-December in 2002 and the second time between January-December in 2004.

By the 2000's, Naidu had become a prominent personality in the Bharatiya Janata Party.

He was a member of BJP's Parliamentary Board and Central Election Committee since January 2006.
