Vice President Venkaiah Naidu? NDA 'almost finalises' minister's name

"Venkaiah has a lot of experience, all NDA allies have welcomed this decision", BJP President Amit Shah announced at a press conference in Delhi on Monday evening.

The BJP-led NDA coalition has a clear edge in the electoral college for Vice-President which comprises all members of Parliament. Like NDA's Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, Mr Naidu comes from a humble background. I'm not aspiring to become anything, party finally decides about the candidature. "I am happy being Usha's pati (husband of Usha)". He recalled that he was the first BJP leader to depart from the hallowed "shakahari" (vegetarian) culinary tradition the party followed in its meetings and served up fish, fowl and meat. However what are the top reasons Naidu has been named the BJP nominee to fight the vice-presidential polls? In another instant which showed both his love for Modi and acronyms, Naidu called PM Modi the "Modifier of Developing India".

Trump's six-month approval rating hits historic low
Trump also charged that the Washington Post-ABC News poll released before the election "was just about the most inaccurate poll". The 40 percent rating by those who agree with Trump on issues is among the lowest given to presidents since the survey began.

Mishra said the final figures from four states - Andhra Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Manipur and Tripura - were still awaited. His national role began only in 1993 when he was appointed the BJP's national general secretary. Among the south Indian states, it is only in Karnataka that the BJP has a strong presence.

Naidu has a tough task cut for him if he becomes the vice-president and the chairman of Rajya Sabha - managing the smooth running of the House. The Modi Government is set to introduce and seek passage of several important legislations through the Rajya Sabha. He was re-elected in 2004, 2010 and 2016. At present, he represents Rajasthan in the Upper House of Parliament. Naidu's political career started in 1971 as president of student's union in VR College, Nellore.

Ramzan Kadyrov doubles down on denying existence of gays in Chechnya
Kadyrov, like most people in Chechnya , is Muslim , and he uses religion for political advantage. If even our state is completely destroyed, our nuclear missiles will automatically fly.

It was Naidu again who reached out to Gandhi on the presidential election and home minister Rajnath Singh let him do the talking with the Congress chief when they visited her to know the Opposition view on the candidate.

A prominent leader of the BJP, he has served as its national president from 2002 to 2004. Even though ridiculed by the Opposition as well as by many on social media, Naidu has been generously rewarded for his devotion to the dual power core of the BJP government and the party.

Turkey extends state of emergency by a further three months
Erdogan accuses Gülen of being behind the coup-a claim that Gülen denies-and accused the United States of harbouring him. Erdogan foes assert that the president's use of emergency powers to purge the government is itself a "controlled coup".

By deciding to back former party president and current union cabinet minister for Information and Broadcasting, and one of the most senior leaders of the BJP, the party has given a fitting reply to the gauntlet thrown at them by a joint opposition.
