Prime Minister Narendra Modi Congratulates New Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh

I congratulate Harivansh ji on being elected the Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha. He is a very humble man.

I am happy that the Leader of the Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley is present in parliament today.

Harivansh ji's experience, commitment and expertise of dealing people will help the Rajya Sabha. He used to earlier run a column on how the parliamentarians of the country should work. Little did he know that one day he will become the deputy chairperson of the upper house of parliament. We all will benefit from his experience.

Today we mark the anniversary of the Quit India Movement. Harivansh ji hails from Ballia, a land linked with freedom fighters. He has been inspired by Loknayak JP. He also spent time in Varanasi.

Here is a leader who worked with a statesman like Chandra Shekhar Ji

Working closely with Chandra Shekhar ji, Harivansh ji knew in advance that Chandra Shekhar ji would resign. However, he did not let his own paper have access to this news. This shows his commitment to ethics and public service.

Harivansh ji is well read and has written a lot. He has served society for years. With him in the Rajya Sabha, things are now 'hari bharose, hari kripa'.

I also want to congratulate opposition candidate BK Hariprasad ji for being a part of the election for Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha.

I wish Harivansh ji all the best for his new role.
