New Delhi: Vice-President  Jagdeep Dhankhar today acknowledged the historical significance of the government’s third term,

Emphasizing the rarity of such an accomplishment, he said: “It is for the first time since 1962 that a Prime Minister has got a third term”.

Addressing the participants of the Rajya Sabha Internship Programme at the Vice President’s enclave, Shri Dhankhar urged the interns to harness the power of social media to express their views and remain vigilant against pernicious tendencies in democracy. Emphasizing the role of constructive debate, dialogue, and discussion in the Parliament for positive growth, Shri Dhankhar urged the interns to mobilize public opinion if they see any deviation from these principles.

He further exhorted that Bharat is not a sleeping giant, instead, we are a country on the move that is rising every day and every moment. Emphasizing the significance of consulting the Indian Constitution for clarity, Shri Dhankhar advised the interns to text of Indian Constitution whenever in doubt.

Describing the internship program as a “Parliamentary Startup” that would provide a new direction and urge to engage with the country’s democratic processes, Shri Dhankhar highlighted how citizens can indirectly participate and raise public issues through petitions, without being a member of Parliament.

Dr Sudesh Dhankhar, Deputy Chairman, Rajya Sabha Harivansh, Secretary General, Rajya Sabha Shri P.C. Mody, Secretary to the Vice President, Sunil Kumar Gupta, Secretary Rajya Sabha, Rajit Punhani and other senior officials were present.
