Mumbai: PM Narendra Modi on Monday thanked outgoing Rajya Sabha Chairman and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu at the conclusion of his tenure.

During his tenure as the Rajya Sabha chairman, PM Modi said, VP Naidu, helped in the “upward journey” of the upper house. The productivity of the upper house increased in his tenure, the prime minister highlighted.

“The one-liners of Venkaiah Naidu ji are famous. They are wit-liners. His command over the languages has always been great,” PM Modi said in Rajya Sabha. ”One of the admirable things about him is his passion for Indian languages. This was reflected in how he presided over the House. He contributed to increased productivity of the Rajya Sabha.”

“I have worked with Naidu ji closely over the years. I have also seen him take up different responsibilities and he performed each of them with great dedication,” the prime minister added.

Vice President Naidu’s term ends on Wednesday. Last week, Jagdeep Dhankhar, backed by the NDA, was chosen as his successor.

The monsoon session of Parliament saw several disruptions with the opposition protesting against inflation, among other issues. The Rajya Sabha suspended over 20 MPs and saw a new record for the most number of MPs suspended in a batch.

Meanwhile, Dhankhar will replace Venkaiah Naidu as the 14th Vice President of India. Amid discussions that the monsoon session may be cut, it is not clear whether he will preside over a session in the Upper House this week.

Several historic bills – including that of scrapping the status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 were passed during VP Naidu’s tenure.
