Naidu had defeated the Opposition's nominee Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, by a wide margin in the 5 August election.

The vice-president-elect said he has the highest respect for Karnataka, for it had given him an opportunity to serve the country as a Rajya Sabha member for three terms.

He also spoke about Indian democracy's might of making a person from a farmer's family as vice -president.

Naidu said he would be very keen to make the Rajya Sabha proceedings meaningful in his capacity as its chairman. He later left for Tirumala by a flight.
