Motihari: In a historic momentous, the 15th President of India, Draupadi Murmu, is set to make her first official visit to East Champaran, Bihar, a land immortalized by Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha movement after the country gained independence.
This visit carries profound significance as it marks the first official visit by an Indian President to the same soil where Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the country’s inaugural President and a pivotal figure in the fight for India’s independence, spent numerous days and nights.
President Murmu is scheduled to grace East Champaran with her presence on October 19th, attending the inaugural convocation ceremony of Mahatma Gandhi Central University. This institution, established seven years ago, embodies the essence of the region’s rich history and its contribution to the Indian freedom struggle. Her visit promises to etch a new chapter in Champaran’s storied history, and preparations are in full swing at all levels of the university administration.
The university administration has meticulously organized 22 different committees to ensure a seamless and memorable visit. During her stay, President Murmu will be immersed in the vibrant culture and traditions of Champaran, with special attention given to the presentation of local customs. Additionally, her culinary experience will feature the flavors of Champaran, offering a delectable taste of the region’s culinary heritage.
In line with protocol, preparations are also underway at the district administration level. On the day of the program, stringent security measures will be in place along all district borders, including the India-Nepal border. The venue of the event, the Gandhi Auditorium in Raja Bazar, will be under robust security to ensure a safe and successful visit.
