The election of Droupadi Murmu as the President of India is a historic moment for Indian democracy. Her remarkable journey from an extremely poor tribal area in Odisha, that too from the disadvantaged Santhal community, to the highest constitutional position in the country has been marked by struggles, grit and determination.
The elevation of a person of such humble origins as the First Citizen is a matter of great joy for all of India, more so for the tribal community. It is sad that the nation had to wait for 70 long years to see a tribal woman reach the highest office of the land. This moment marks yet another victory for our democracy and our Constitution under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
