n these past five years, India has seen a brilliant person as our president and as the first citizen of India. He was known for speaking his mind and popularly for appointing Man Mohan Singh as the Governor of India during his role as a finance minister. Pranab Mukherjee’s tenure has been one of the best five years in the recent times making it really hard for our next president to step into his shoes.
Our new and 14th president, Sri Ram Nath Kovind, was elected on 20th July and took his oath as the President of India on 25th July. For 16 years, he practised in the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court as a lawyer and entered the political scenario of the nation in 1994 as a Rajya Sabha member from Uttar Pradesh. He drew attention towards the development of the basic physical and organisational structures of the rural areas of Uttar Pradesh and helped in building institutes and schools for the youth.The father of two was appointed as the Governor of Bihar on August 8, 2015.
He was also a part of various parliamentary committees serving social justice and empowerment and also worked on the welfare of the scheduled tribes. He even addressed the United Nations General Assembly in October 2002.
Let us wait and watch how the BJP nominated and elected president will bring the achhe din for us.
