Vice President Venkaiah Naidu releases two volumes of selected speeches of President Kovind

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has said that political parties must evolve a consensus on the Code of Conduct for their Members both inside the Legislature and out of it. He said, otherwise people might soon lose faith in the political processes and institutions.

Mr Naidu said this after releasing two volumes of selected speeches of President Ram Nath Kovind - The Republican Ethic and Loktantra ke Swar in New Delhi this evening. Mr Naidu said, the transformation of the country requires a clean polity with unwavering commitment towards constitutional morality.

He said, there is a need to have more persons in leadership positions who are mindful of not only of Constitutional morality but also of Institutional dignity and Individual integrity. He said, President Kovind has always called for inclusiveness and raised concern for the downtrodden.

He said the President has often asked for empathy, fraternity, mutual dignity and generosity of spirit during his speeches. He stated that this all-embracing inclusiveness resonates when Mr Kovind says that India of the 21st Century will be in conformity with country's ancient values as well as compliant with the fourth Industrial Revolution. 

In her speech, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said President Kovind's knowledge and command over diverse topics shine through his speeches. She said President Kovind is able to infuse the depth of knowledge inherited from country's ancient past in his speeches.

Mrs Swaraj pointed out that Indian democracy has been built on the basis of values of equality and brotherhood. She added that these values have continued to inspire the life and work of the President. 

In his speech, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Col Rajyavardhan Rathore expressed pride that India's leadership comes from the grassroot levels. He said it is one of the proudest moments for Publications Division to be able to publish President Ram Nath Kovind's speeches and preserve them.

In his welcome address, Secretary, Information and Broadcasting, Amit Khare said the two volumes of the selected speeches of President Kovind reflect his wisdom, erudition and firm commitment to the well-being of the teeming millions of India. 

In his address Prasar Bharti Chairman Dr A Surya Prakash said, President's speeches reflect his simplicity, concern for fellow citizens, commitment to Constitution's core values and the democratic way of life.

He said, D for Decency must be added to 3 Ds of Legislature - Debate, Dissent and Decide. He said, when the 4 Ds become operative, 5th D for Democracy becomes a reality. 

Later, Information and Broadcasting Minister Col Rathore called on President Kovind at Rashtrapati Bahavan and presented first copies of the released books.
