Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu today expressed concern over the frequent disruptions faced by Parliament and State legislatures and advised lawmakers to debate and decide instead of stalling legislative business.
 
Speaking at a State Reception hosted in his honour by the Telangana Government here, Mr Naidu referred to the advice of former President Pranab Mukherjee to discuss, debate and decide. There should not be any scope for the fourth D – Disrupt, he added.
 
He called upon legislators to regularly interact with people and come out with effective laws for spurring the growth of the country.
 
The Vice-President also counselled the Chief Ministers of the  Telugu-speaking States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to resolve differences in an amicable manner and strive for promoting the language.
 
He also wanted the Chief Ministers to recapture the past glory of the Telugu States.
 
Recalling his association with Hyderabad, the Vice-President said he had been residing in the historic city for the past 40 years and his political career blossomed here.
 
Paying rich tributes to Telangana culture and history, he said it is a land known for struggles and movements. He eulogized the contribution of the people from Telangana during the freedom struggle and referred to how they fought against the tyranny of Nizam and the Razaakars. Komaram Bheem, Sammakka- Sarakka and Chakali Ailamma were symbols of the rebellion, he added.
 
Making a special mention of Telangana cuisine, the Vice President said Hyderabad biryani and haleem have become world famous. Hyderabad was the brand for the promotion of Telangana and has put the State on the international map.
 
The Vice-President said everyone should strive to realise the dream of Mahatma Gandhi to establish ‘Ramrajya’. He stressed that ‘Swarajya’ should be transformed into ‘Surajya’.
 
Telangana Governor E S L Narasimhan, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment Bandaru Dattatreya,  and Deputy Chief Ministers M D Mohammad Ali and Kadiyam Srihari were also present on the occasion.
