Union Minister Anurag Thakur congratulated President-elected Droupadi Murmu on her victory and thanked UPA members who voted for her. “They went above and beyond their party for the sake of the country.” “Seeing a tribal woman rise to the highest position is heartening,” he told ANI. When the votes were counted, it was clear that Murmu’s spectacular victory had also been aided by some cross-voting — evidence of division and confusion in the Opposition ranks.
Droupadi Murmu, the NDA’s Presidential candidate, became the country’s first tribal President on Thursday, defeating Opposition nominee Yashwant Sinha. Murmu, the former Governor of Jharkhand, easily defeated challenger and Opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha, receiving 64.03 percent of all votes cast.
Murmu, 64, is the country’s first Adivasi and the second woman to be named First Citizen and Supreme Commander of India’s Armed Forces. Murmu was elected to the Odisha Assembly twice, in 2000 and 2004, and served as a Minister in Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s BJD-BJP coalition government from 2000 to 2004. In 2015, she was sworn in as Jharkhand’s first female governor.
