President Draupadi Murmu: Every small and big choice gives some kind of signal and message. On which not only the present runs, but also the background of the future is prepared on this basis. Draupadi Murmu’s journey from the darkness of kutcha houses to the glittering Rashtrapati Bhavan seems to succeed in creating a similar backdrop. Because Draupadi Murmu was also completely unaware of the ‘Luty Zone’ like Modi. Like Modi, Draupadi Murmu is the country’s first head of state born after independence. Murmu’s victory on the one hand gives shape to Deen Dayal Upadhyay ji’s Antiodaya and on the other hand explains the reality of any dream for every common man. Murmu’s victory has infused new joy and hope in the country.
When the second Sarsanghchalak of the Sangh, Guru Ji Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar conceived the Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram in 1952, who would have imagined that those who have been isolated for centuries, live a life of hatred of isolation and face the danger of conversion with foreigners. money Our tribal society will be able to create such a great story so soon. 98% of foreign money games take place in this area. They are the victims of all the separatist movements like the Naxalites, the Maoists. They may not be untouchable, but they have been neglected. On the map of the country, about one lakh thirty-five thousand of their villages got tired of waiting for development, they grew old, their eyes were stoned. Our bureaucracy has taken it off the map. But because of Draupadi Murmu, all the villages appeared on the map at once. Now you will see a bureaucracy running in these villages with tap, water, electricity, road, water, medicine, education.
The election of Murmu (Draupadi Murmu Political Race) has shown that the opposition parties of India still cannot give competition to the BJP and will prove to be dwarfed by the BJP even in the 2024 elections.That is: “Next time, then the Modi government.” Because to defeat Narendra Modi the leader and his party need to do politics eighty percent in eighty against twenty. But there is no leader everywhere to do it. Even if someone takes steps in this direction, they will not be able to leave behind Modi in the race. Second, opposition unity is an essential element in defeating Modi. The election of Murmu showed that this will not happen. Because let alone the consent in one face, the steering wheel of the head is not taking the name of stopping. Yashwant Sinha was not the consensus candidate of the opposition side. Mamta Banerjee wanted to pit Tulsi Munda, a tribal leader from Odisha, opposite Draupadi Murmu. There was a time when the ruling party used to taunt the opposition that it will be your face in the elections. The question remains the same even today, but today the leaders of the opposition and the ruling party have completely changed.
The fighting spirit of the BJP can be understood from the fact that its leaders, who claimed 65% of the votes in favor of Murmu, got 64% of the votes. While Murmu should have got 61.1% of the votes from the NDA side. That is, the benefit of cross-voting was found to be 2.9 percent. While Yashwant Sinha was expected to get 38.9% of the opposition votes. But the loss of 36 percent, or 2.9 percent, was due to cross-voting. The cross-voting of 17 MLAs and 110 MLAs in favor of Draupadi Murmu sends a message that, at least in presidential elections, every public representative should be allowed to use his discretion. Before the elections, especially all the parties had given training to their MPs and MLAs to vote so that no vote was invalid. However, a total of 53 votes were declared invalid. In the 2017 presidential election, 77 of the total votes cast nationally were declared invalid. The invalidation of votes indicates that till the year of Amrit Mahotsav we could not convert our republic into a democracy. Because the choice had to be made only between the two. At the same time, the lack of voting by fourteen deputies and forty-two deputies shows how irresponsible we are with our democratic rights.
The BJP has had the chance to make three presidents so far. The party returned Muslim AJP Abdul Kalam, Scheduled Caste Ram Nath Kovind and Scheduled Tribe (Adivasi Mahila Draupadi Murmu) Draupadi Murmu to office on these three occasions. His message is that the party has opened the doors of its social engineering for Dalits and tribal society. The BJP has an opportunity to say that the Congress is not only anti-tribal but also against the promotion of women in politics. By choosing Murmu, BJP supporters will surely claim that only Modi has the courage and foresight to make a tribal woman the president of the country.
Murmu’s debut came at a time when the Congress and its former president Rahul Gandhi were trying to woo the tribal community. Rahul recently started his party’s tribal satyagraha in Gujarat. He had reiterated his commitment to fight for the welfare of the tribal community. But for the biennial Rajya Sabha elections, the Congress did not field a single tribal candidate despite being in a position to win two seats from Chhattisgarh. So now Congress has no symbol to represent the tribal community.
Murmu has traveled from counselor to president. However, Murmu and her husband did not want her to enter politics. Draupadi became a teacher and her husband Shyam Charan Murmu was satisfied with the bank job. The then Mayurbhanj district president Ravindra Nath Mahto had gone to Draupadi 25 years ago in 1997 with a proposal to contest for councilor election. Mahto wanted to fight Draupadi from ward number two in Rairangpur, which was reserved for tribal women. As Murmu had gone to study at the tribal residential school in Bhubaneswar, Mahto was familiar with Draupadi Murmu from the same time. Draupadi respected Mahto like an uncle. Finally, Shyam Charan and Draupadi had to bow to Rabindra Nath Mahto’s request and pressure.
Draupadi Murmu Date of birth is the youngest president of the country. Born on June 20, 1958, Murmu’s age is 64 years, one month and 8 days. Draupadi Murmu is the first leader from Odisha to achieve this top spot.
The BJP is expected to make mid-term electoral gains with Murmu’s victory. Between the end of 2022 and the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, elections are due to be held in states like Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. Each of these states has a large tribal vote bank that had rejected the BJP in the last assembly elections. The message of Murmu’s election is that it is not too late for the BJP to monopolize the tribal vote. No more campaigning for the BJP in 47 Lok Sabha seats and 604 Assembly seats.
However, Draupadi Murmu becoming president has a very deep and serious message. Very rarely has it happened in the world that the original inhabitants of the land of a country, who are called adivasis, tribals or aborigines, have been elevated to the highest position. America claims to be the country with the most powerful democracy and equal rights in the world, but no American Indian or Red Indian has become the president of the country in the history of America. The same is true of Canada, Australia and New Zealand, where native aboriginals are far from the top.
Whatever political advantage the BJP may take by making Draupadi Murmu the president does not matter much. But it is a very important step in the direction of giving the right to a tribe, the real resident of this land, about which no one could think or have courage until now.
