Speaking on the occasion, the CM said: “We are privileged by the august presence of Shri Kovind. We are honoured that he accepted our invitation, and has visited Bengal within weeks of assuming office.”
She reminisced the days when they were parliamentary colleagues. Mamata Banerjee said, “When I was a member of the Lok Sabha, you were a member of the Rajya Sabha. You always maintained a low profile and were always immersed in your work.”
The Constitutional post of the President is above religion and deserves respect, maintained the CM. She wished the President a long and healthy life.
