VP Not Invited, RS Secretariat Unhappy
The Rajya Sabha secretariat is unhappy that VicePresident Hamid Ansari, ex-officio chairperson of the Upper House, was not invited for the inauguration ceremony of the new Parliament Annexe. The secretariat dashed off a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker’s office asking how this happened. PM Modi inaugurated the building. Incidentally, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan will host a farewell dinner for Ansari in the same building today.
