NEW DELHI: In his farewell address to the nation, outgoing President Ram Nath Kovind said on Sunday it is a testament to the strength of the Indian democracy that a young boy living in a mud house was able to rise through the ranks and occupy the highest constitutional office of the Republic of India. “If that Ram Nath Kovind from village Paraunkh is addressing you today, it is solely thanks to the inherent power of our vibrant democratic institutions,” he said.
Kovind, who demits office on Sunday, also expressed gratitude towards fellow citizens, elected representatives, the jawans of the armed forces, para-military forces and the police, with whom he interacted during his Presidency and who inspired him.
“Their patriotic zeal is as amazing as it is inspiring. During my visits abroad, whenever I spoke with members of the Indian diaspora, I found their love and concern for the homeland very touching….With diligence and dedication, they are busy creating a better tomorrow for their fellow Indians. All these re-affirm the belief that the nation is after all composed of its citizens; and with each of you striving to make India better and better, the nation’s great future is secure,” Kovind said. President-elect Droupadi Murmu will be sworn in as the country’s 15th President on Monday.
Kovind lauded the National Education Policy, the improved healthcare systems, and economic reforms, and said these will let Indians find the best course for their lives. “I firmly believe that our country is getting equipped to make the 21st century, the century of India,” President Kovind said.
As a word of advice, President Kovind said Indian citizens must care for the environment, land, air and water, for the sake of future generations. Recalling the most memorable moments of his life as the one when he returned to Kanpur Dehat as President of India and touched the feet of his teachers, President Kovind said the connection to one’s roots is the essence of India.
