In a reflective address at the 43rd convocation of the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) in Gujarat, former Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu commended the peaceful transition observed in India's recent Lok Sabha elections. Naidu noted that the outcome serves as a testament to India's robust democratic framework.

However, the BJP stalwart also highlighted that the ruling party did not secure an outright majority, making room for the Opposition's admirable performance. He reiterated that irrespective of election outcomes, political parties should prioritize the upliftment of the impoverished and marginalized sectors.

Naidu further urged the graduating students to bring innovative solutions to bolster agriculture and rural sectors. He cautioned against the overuse of electronic devices by children and warned about the unchecked implications of Artificial Intelligence, stressing the need for responsible technological use.
