Hukum Deo Narayan was Also Con­sid­ered

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Hukum Deo Narayan Ya­dav, for­mer Union min­is­ter and BJP Lok Sabha MP from Bi­har, was also in the reck­on­ing for the vice-pres­i­dent’s post and he fig­ured in the names short­listed by the rul­ing party. BJP brass fi­nally went for M Venkaiah Naidu as it wanted a face from the South. More­over, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi him­self be­longs to OBC, the cat­e­gory that Ya­dav hails from. Both Naidu and Ya­dav have the gift of the gab and it would have been equally in­ter­est­ing to watch Ya­dav con­duct the House. Naidu is known for his al­lit­er­a­tions and th­ese will be in full play in the Up­per House.
