Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi led his government in bidding farewell to Ansari.

India's next vice president Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday dismissed allegations of insecurity among Muslims as a political propaganda, a day after his predecessor Hamid Ansari flagged a "growing unease" among the country's minority community.

Ansari told the truth, considered Congress speaker Pratap Singh Bajwade, who extended the problem to other minorities such as Christians, Sikhs and Buddhists.

"Whenever I met you, I learnt a lot from you". It's only source of reference is the book of rules, said Ansari. "I call that a sense of insecurity", he said, while refusing to criticise the judges. I heard the same thing in Bengaluru, I have heard from other parts of the country, I hear more about it in north India.

Now, Snapchat has a third breakthrough filter: a dancing hotdog, that has gyrated virtually on people's screens around the world. Nowak said Snapchat is also facing tougher competition from Facebook-owned Instagram, which has been offering similar services.

Quoting his predecessor Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Mr Ansari said a democracy is distinguished by the protection it gives to minorities.

Nawab is saying that the opinion of Hamid Ansari over the Muslims in the country is insecure.

At the farewell function, Modi said Ansari could maintain a delicate balance in the House because of his "intellectual capability and skills".

Expectedly unhappy about Ansari's comments on the unease among minorities in the country, the BJP chose to hit back at the outgoing vice president, alleging that since he will lose his constitutional office today, Ansari was now looking for a political role.

"You made your best effort to run the House by the Constitution", he said. "The challenges today are challenges of development, what are the requirements for development; you keep up with the times, educate yourself, and compete...", he said.

Targeting the outgoing vice-president for his comments, the BJP said such a "petty" remark was not expected from someone in his position.

Following the ceremonial reception Naidu will take over as the speaker of the Rajya Sabha in the Parliament. Modi launched a veiled attack on Ansari saying the former diplomat had a limited view and belief restricted to a certain circle (Muslim community).

Jaitley, who had been the Leader of Opposition during the UPA regime, said Ansari's anguish was often visible when the House got disrupted.
