Parimal Nathwani, a consecutive third time Rajya Sabha MP took oath today. Vice President of India and Chairman of Rajya Sabha Venkaiah Naidu administrated the oath in his chamber. Nathwani, who will be representing Andhra Pradesh this time, could not take oath with other newly elected members as he was indisposed and could not travel to Delhi. Nathwani, who represented Jharkhand in 2008 and 2014, got elected a third time for Rajya Sabha as YSR Congress candidate on 19th June 2020.
“I thank our dynamic and very popular young leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, and YSR Congress Party, for giving me the opportunity to serve the people of this state. It is over a year since he became CM of AP and he has fulfilled nearly 90% of the promises made by him and he will do a lot more for the over-all development of the state in the remaining 4 years of his term. Our CM has focused on the ‘Navaratnalu’ or the 9 welfare schemes that he had promised to implement, and a lot has been achieved in each of these schemes,” said Nathwani after his swearing in at Delhi.
He further added, “Just last week Andhra Pradesh was ranked No. 1 state in ease of doing business rankings released by GoI’s Department for Promotion of Industry & Internal Trade. On Monday, honourable CM had launched the YSR Sampoorna Poshana scheme which will provide over 30 lakh beneficiaries with fortified nutritious food. In August, Vijayawada & Visakhapatnam figured among top 10 cleanest cities in India (with population of over 10 lakh) as per the Swachh Survekshan 2020. These are only a few of the CM’s achievements as well as beneficial schemes for masses rolled out by him in last one year.” “I am fully committed to serving the people of Andhra Pradesh and will work along with CM and his team for the development of the state. I will bring to the table my extensive experience gained during my 12 years as RS MP of Jharkhand and several decades of experience at Reliance Industries Ltd,” concluded Nathwani.
