Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren meets newly elected President Droupadi Murmu

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren meets newly elected President Droupadi Murmu on Sunday. Hemant Soren is on his Delhi tour to launch a new tourism policy. He gave her many good wishes on behalf of all the people of Jharkhand.

Notably, Droupadi Murmu was the candidate for the BJP-backed NDA in the presidential election. Despite this, the ruling JMM in Jharkhand supported Droupadi Murmu in the elections. JMM clearly believed that for the first time a tribal woman, is going to sit on the post of the country’s first citizen. Murmu was also the Governor of Jharkhand. It is a matter of pride for Jharkhand. That’s why JMM supported Droupadi Murmu.

To succeed Ram Nath Kovid as the nation’s fifteenth president, Murmu received more than 64% of the legitimate votes, easily defeating joint opposition nominee Yashwant Sinha. She will take oath on Monday.
