Pranab Mukherjee served as the 13th President of India. His contribution for India is immense and his political career is one of the influential on in the history of the congress party. He died at the Army’s Research and Referral Hospital where he also tested positive for COVID-19.
His death is mourned by all political leaders of the country. He was a man of great clarity and thought and his death is surely a huge political loss to the country
Here are top quotes by the former President Pranab Mukherjee about India-
The young people of India will build a strong and powerful nation, a nation that is politically mature and economically strong, a nation whose people enjoy both, a high quality of life as well as justice.
As Indians we must of course learn from the past, but we must remain focused on the future. In my view, education is the true alchemy that can bring India its next golden age
There is no room in India for the intolerant Indian. India has been, since ancient times a bastian of free thought, speech and expression.
Soul of India resides in pluralism and tolerance. This plurality came with assimilation of ideas over centuries. Secularism is a matter of faith for us.
Every time a child or woman is brutalized, the soul of India is wounded.
Our national identity is of co-existence. We celebrate our strength from tolerance, we celebrate our diversity.
Any attempt at defining our nationhood in terms of identities or religion, region, hatred and intolerance will dilute national identity.
We must move from conflict, violence and anger and move into harmony and peace. Our mother land is asking for it, it deserves it.
