The Mayurbhanj district flared up in joy on Monday as Droupadi Murmu took oath as the 15th president of India in New Delhi.
People from several communities, students from educational institutions, BJP and BJD workers, and social activists organized various cultural activities and distributed sweets to celebrate Murmu’s swearing-in ceremony.
In Pahadpur, Kusumi Block, the Rairangpur District Forestry Department organized a plantation program at SLS Smaraki Residential School which was founded by Murmu in 2016 to commemorate her husband Shyam Charan Murmu and her son Laxman and Sangram.
The Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) NaliniKanta Behera said the school plantations were held to celebrate the new beginning of MurMU as the first citizen. He said that the celebration at the school was important as President Murmu built the school to commemorate her husband and two sons.
In the morning, the students bloomed on the monument to the deceased family and watched the vow ritual on the TV in the school.
Many well-wishers and followers, along with the native tribes of the Rairangpur community, conducted cultural programmes in front of Droupadi’s home in Mahuldiha. People dressed in Santhali costumes celebrated by ringing firecrackers, playing musical instruments and DJ music, and handing out candies.
In the birthplace of the president, a tribal group of Santhali communities held a puja with the village head.
The celebration was also seen among other tribal areas of Jamda, Badamtalia, Tiring and Bahalda.
