In Odisha, tribals live in large numbers in Mayurpanj, the home district of President Drabupati Murmu. 60 people from this area were invited to the inauguration ceremony of the President. This includes a friend of President Dravupati Murmu.
After the swearing-in ceremony, Drarubathi Murmu arranged lunch for all of them. All of them sat and had food with the President. They said that it was a pleasant surprise to eat with the daughter of their land.
Regarding this, Sujata Murmu, the former Zilla Parishad president of Mayurbhanj district and Murmu’s friend, said: We were very happy to participate in the inauguration ceremony of the President in Parli’s central hall.
All of us participated in this ceremony wearing traditional dress according to our culture. Lunch is vegetarian. The President does not eat non-vegetarian food; He does not even eat garlic and onions. It is an unforgettable experience.
The only regret was not being able to take a ‘selfie’ with the President as mobile phones and cameras are not allowed inside the Presidential Palace. This is what he said.
