HYDERABAD: Recalling that he used to sit in the library of the then undivided Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly for hours to study how debates had taken place in the House on people’s issues in order to constructively take part in such discussions on the floor of the House when he was an MLA in the early 1980s, Vice President-Elect M Venkaiah Naidu has said that in a similar manner, now he is spending a lot of time to read various books to know how his predecessors such as S Radhakrishnan and Zakir Hussain performed the job of VP, perfectly.

“As the chairperson of Rajya Sabha, I would try to ensure that that the House takes up constructive debates on people’s issues. I would make all possible efforts to see that all members, including those from Opposition, get a chance to speak. I would facilitate an environment for passing of government bills,” he said here on Wednesday.
