It was a remarkable day in the history of Indian Republic when Draupadi Murmu, hailing from a tribal community and born in a remote village in Odisha's Mayurbhanj took oath as the 15th President of India.
Nomination of Draupadi Murmu by the party in power as the presidential candidate was a political master stroke. Her credentials were so strong that she deserved to be a consensus candidate and should have been elected unopposed.
The YSR Congress led by Jagan Mohan Reddy has also announced its support to the candidature of Murmu.
If Draupadi succeeds Ram Nath Kovid, she will be the first Odia and first tribal person to hold the topmost constitutional post.
