"I know M Venkaiah Naidu Garu for years. Have always admired his hard work & tenacity. A fitting candidate for the office of Vice-President," the prime minister tweeted, soon after the announcement of the decision of BJP's Parliamentary Board, the highest decision-making body of the party.

"The years of Parliamentary experience M Venkaiah Naidu Garu has will help him discharge the important role of Rajya Sabha Chairperson," Modi added.
