BJP Rajya Sabha MP Paresh Rawal today fired a sardonic salvo at outgoing Vice President Hamid Ansari over his remarks about Muslims of the country

In his tribute Sitaram Yechury said: "I only wish that you continue to share your wisdom with all of us and the country, after you leave this august House and this august Office". Bidding farewell to Ansari in the Rajya Sabha on his last day, Singh said he had received maximum possible guidance and cooperation from the outgoing Chairman.

With a call to fight intolerance and attacks on minorities, Indian Vice President Hamid Ansari said goodbye today after ending his second consecutive five-year term. But from now onwards, you will not face that difficulty.

Since the day got the recognition largely thanks Prime Minister Narendra Modi's efforts, yoga day was celebrated with grandeur.

But to the best of his knowledge, Ansari faced no controversy in his long public life which was worth emulating, Modi said. "I hope you will continue to guide the nation in moving forward on the path laid down by the Constitution", he added, while joking that Ansari has kept himself physically fit.

Hussain was reacting to comments Ansari made during an interview with Rajya Sabha TV.

"It is unfortunate that Ansari followed (Md Ali) Jinnah rather than adopting the paths of former president APJ Abdul Kalam and freedom fighter Maulana Azad", Jain said.

Following the ceremonial reception Naidu will take over as the speaker of the Rajya Sabha in the Parliament.

"He is still the vice-president and such comments do not suit the dignity of the office he holds", he said. Many in the political circles saw PM's remarks on Ansari as significant, juxtaposing it with the resentment in BJP circles and even among allies like Shiv Sena.

When asked about the Supreme Court order making it mandatory to play the national anthem before every film screening, and the more recent Madras High Court ruling on the "Vande Mataram", Ansari said: "The courts are a part of society". BJP member Dilipbhai Pandya and TMC member D Bandopadhyay also retired from the Upper House.

"Honorable Prime Minister has asserted time and again that he will protect the minorities, but the words haven't been filtered into action as yet", he said. You lived in that atmosphere, that thought, the debates among those people.

The Vice President elect said he had a very meaningful journey and has given his best in whatever responsibility he was entrusted. He will also be the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
