As outgoing Vice-President Hamid Ansari finishes his tenure, the Rajya Sabha on Thursday heaped lavish praises on Chairman Ansari. With Ansari leaving the office after a decade, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other senior members lauded him for upholding constitutional norms.

Praising Vice President Ansari, Modi said the Chairman did his best to uphold the Constitution. The Vice President is the Chairman of Rajya Sabha. The Prime Minister said the Chairman’s experience as a career diplomat would have helped him in conducting the business of the Upper House. Modi said he too had benefited immensely from Ansari’s insights on diplomatic issues on several occasions.

Bearing his best wishes to Ansari and wishing him a long life, PM Modi said the outgoing chairman has also kept himself physically fit. The leader of the House and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said “in the life of this House, today is very important occasion. We are bidding farewell to you after you complete 10 years as the distinguished Chairman of this House.”

Jaitley said the House witnessed both disruptions as well as high-quality debates during the tenure of Ansari. The leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad praised Ansari for the way he conducted the proceedings of the House. Recalling his long association with Ansari, Azad said the Chairman was given several honorary degrees by different countries, but he never used them.
