Naidu urges MPs to address the Chair as 'Honourable Vice-President'

On Tuesday Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu urged members to address the Vice-President as 'Honourable Vice-President'. "I would request and suggest to all members that they should address the Chairman or even the Vice-President of India as Honourable Vice-President.

However, he adjourned the House minutes later.
