Droupadi Murmu Returns to Jharkhand

The first time most of us heard of Droupadi Murmu was when she was appointed governor of Jharkhand, where by all accounts she impressed Prime Minister N D Modi with her dignified and measured six-year tenure in the Raj Bhavan in Ranchi. So much so that Modi picked her as the National Democratic Alliance’s Presidential candidate.

Fourteen days before her almost certain election as India’s next Rashtrapati, Mrs Murmu returned to Ranchi as part of the get-to-know-me national tour which both she and her opponent in the July 18 Presidential poll Yashwant Sinha have undertaken since they were named the NDA and Opposition nominees for the Presidency.
