Mentioned first love
Raghav Chadha while congratulating Venkaiah Naidu said that everyone remembers their first experience, first day of school, first school principal, first teacher, first love. I will always remember you as my first Speaker when I came to this House. It is an honor to receive your patronage as I begin my parliamentary career. But it is my misfortune that I had the opportunity to work only one session under your patronage. You taught me an important lesson in discipline on my swearing-in day.
Arrived late on the first day
In fact, when Raghav Chadha reached the House on the first day as a member of the Rajya Sabha, he was delayed in reaching the House. Referring to this, Raghav said, “I went to the Gurudwara with my parents before coming to the Sadan on the first day. There was also traffic, due to which I was 8-10 minutes late in coming to the Sadan. . But by then the oath taking ceremony was over. You were gone, but on my appeal, you came back and taught me discipline as well as administered the oath to me.
Mention of equality
Mentioning the similarities between Venkaiah Naidu and himself, Raghav Chadha said, “Sir, with that, I would like to say that the journey that you had, in one way or another, coincides with the journey of our people.” You have also come from the anti-corruption movement, you have also come from the JP movement, you have also been the chairman of a committee. We also come from the anti-corruption movement, through this movement our party was formed under the leadership of our leader Arvind Kejriwal. This is the similarity between my political life and yours.
Venkaiah called Naidu a source of inspiration
Praising Venkaiah Naidu, Raghav said that one of your journeys has been an inspiration to all of us, especially the youth. From an ordinary worker, he took charge as MLA, Member of Parliament, Minister and then Vice President. When the first session of the Rajya Sabha was held in 1952, the then Chairman Dr. Radhakrishnan had said that I do not come from any party, meaning I am from all parties. My endeavor will be to follow the highest tradition of democracy, to work with all parties fairly.
As Raghav Chadha described Venkaiah Naidu as an inspiration and referred to first love, Venkaiah Naidu said that according to me, love is the same, once, it doesn’t happen again, first love, first love. In response to which Raghav Chadha said that I am not so experienced sir, I have not yet experienced so much in life but it is good. To which Venkaiah Naidu said that first love is good and it always remains the same.
