When President Pranab Mukherjee was preparing to leave Rashtrapati Bhavan five years ago, Draupadi Murmu was at first considered a candidate for the presidency. On Tuesday, she was nominated as the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) nominee for the presidency.
At the time, the tribal chieftain from Odisha who was also serving as the governor of Jharkhand was believed to be one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leading candidates.
Because it is anticipated that the NDA would win 48 percent of the vote, her election as President will provide a significant boost to the tribal agenda of the BJP. It is also possible that it will improve the party’s chances in Odisha, where it has been attempting to gain traction in its competition with the BJD.
Shyam Charan Murmu
Shyam Charan Murmu was Murmu’s husband. They were blessed with two sons and a daughter throughout their time together. Draupadi Murmu’s life has been significantly influenced by a number of tragic events, including the passing of her husband and two sons. There is no further evidence that points to her husband’s existence.
Before getting involved in politics at the state level, Murmu started his professional life as a teacher. He is originally from the Mayurbhanj district of Odisha. She was elected to the position of Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) twice, both times representing the BJP’s Rairangpur constituency in Mayurbhanj.
Today in Ranchi, Jharkhand Governor Draupadi Murmu gave the directive to Jharkhand’s Director General of Police (DGP) KN Choubey to pursue legal action against those responsible for the Chaibasa incident. Additionally, the Governor charged him with upholding law and order and preserving peace throughout the state.
During the tenure of the BJP-BJD coalition government that came to power in the year 2000, she was in charge of the Fisheries and Animal Husbandry portfolios. After that, she was in charge of the Commerce and Transport portfolios. In 2009, when the BJP was beaten by the BJD, which had been separated from it at the time, she was still able to win.
In 1997, Murmu won the election to serve as a councillor for the Rairangpur Nagar Panchayat. She also held the position of vice president of the Scheduled Tribes Morcha of the Bharatiya Janata Party throughout her time in politics.
