India’s newly elected Vice President, Venkaiah Naidu, on Friday said that Goddess Durga was the defence minister and Goddess Laxmi the finance minister.
Delivering a significant address at the Indian School of Business (ISB) Leadership Summit in Mohali on Friday, Naidu described the Indian goddesses as empowered women.
Naidu also told students to be proud of their heritage.
He said, “Speak in any other language only when the other person does not know your mother tongue,” he said.
“Ram Rajya is still hailed as the greatest period of our history because of the ideal governance. But if one talks about it today, it too may be given a communal angle,” he said during his speech peppered with humour, anecdotes and Hindi one-liners.
Venkaiah Naidu is known for spinning several acronyms in the past, we list some of them below for you:
1. MODI: Maker of Developed India
2. EVM: Every Vote Modi
3. CITY: Civic Infrastructure To You
4. YOUNG: You Owe U and Nation Greatness
5. APJ Abdul Kalam: Anything is Possible with Just Attitude and Karma
