Vice President-elect Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said that India is best model of secularism. Venkaiah is all set to take oath as Vice President of India on Friday.
“Unfortunately, now in politics 3 Cs have entered-Cash, Caste and Community; must return to 4 Cs-Character, Caliber, Capacity and Conduct,” said Venkaiah.
Venkaiah said that despite having so many different languages and dressings, India is united as one nation. He added that unity in diversity is India's speciality.
Venkaiah is all set to assume office of Vice President on Friday. Born to a humble agricultural family in Andhra Pradesh’s Nellore district, the 68-year-old has served as BJP president, the minister in various portfolios and a long-time Rajya Sabha member.
This remarkable career in politics has been more than four decades in the making.
It began in the 1970s when BJP’s precursor Jana Sangh was a marginal player with little clout in the south and a young party worker kept himself busy putting up posters of stalwarts such as Atal Bihari Vajpayee and L K Advani.
