    Journalist turned politician Harivansh Narayan Singh is the new Deputy Chairman of the Upper House

    The NDA nominee Harivansh Narayan Singh has been elected today as the Deputy Chairman Rajya Sabha. The election exposed the differences of opinion among the opposition parties as the Congress nominee B K Hari Prasad failed to overtake him as 14 MPs from various parties including AAP abstained the voting.

    A JD(U) man and close associate of Nitish Kumar, Harivansh Narayan Singh was elected first time to the Rajya Sabha in April 2014 after playing long innings as a journalist working with Hindi daily, Prabhat Khabar, a Ranchi based newspaper. He served as Media Advisor to former Prime Minister Chandrasekhar when he was in the office of PMO. A cool and matured man is expected to run the house with efficiency and sure to give good support to the oratory Chairman Venkaih Naidu. Moreover, this election is a boost to BJP as it would further strengthen the ties between BJP and JD(U).

    The winning of NDA nominee Harivansh Narayan Singh has once again proved that slowly the NDA which has less majority in RS is slowly gaining one win after other and now this win would envisage greater support to the NDA as the group could have formidable support in LS but when it comes to RS, major bills are not getting passed and thus with Harivansh a journalist by profession at the helm of affairs, surely things are going to move fast and the opposition cannot take the house for ride. So this is one more way to sooth the dissatisfied JDU which wants to distance from NDA.

    This is a good win for NDA. Probably KCR's candidates voted for NDA candidate. Probably KCR is praising Modi for mentioning him as a matured politician during his reply to a no-confidence motion. Pm mentioned that Babu is not as matured as KCR in politics. So KCR decides to go in favour of Modi. What happened to the third front. If we ask the same question to KCR, what will be his reply?
    It is evident that the strength of the ruling party increased in Rajya Sabha also. This is another boost to NDA government. As expressed by the author the ties between BJP and JD(U) will get strengthened with this. Harivansh Narayan Singh as the new Deputy Chairman of the Upper House will definitely prove his skills and my hearty congratulations to him. He is a good combination to Venkiah Naidu and both will do a good job in running the house.

    always confident
