NEW DELHI: Soon after his thumping win, President-select Ram Nath Kovind, the following occupant of the 2,00,000-squareft sprawling Rashtrapati Bhavan with 340 rooms, recalled the thatched residence in his local Kanpur Dehat where he spent his early life.

The early morning rain in New Delhi — hours before the votes cast within the presidential polls had been taken up for counting — reminded him of his early life travails: how he used to attend together with his siblings for the rains to forestall as the roof of their residence leaked badly.

“It is an emotional second for me. today it’s raining in Delhi since morning. The rain strikes a chord in my memory of my youth days after I used to stay in my native village,” stated Kovind, including, “Ghar kachcha tha, mitti ki diwar thi, baarish ke samay phoos ki chhat paani rok nahi pati thi. Ham sab bhai, behan, kamare ke baahar khade hokar intezar karte the ki baarish kab khatam hogi” (We had a thatched house, the walls had been made of dust. The roof leaked and we used to await the rain to prevent).”

Kovind likened his ascension to the elevation of the bad and farmers across the us of a and assured them that he might be their consultant on Raisina Hill.

Election as President of India strikes a chord in my memory of a remarkable responsibility because the put up turned into in advance held by way of tremendous scholars like Rajendra Prasad, S Radhakrishnan, A P J Abdul Kalam and Pranab Mukherjee,” said Kovind at his temporary residence at 10, Akbar road, a little after returning officer Anoop Mishra handed him his election certificates.

He stated there would be many human beings busy in farms or running as labourers inside the rain or sweating it out for a naked minimum residing. “i’m going to the Rashtrapati Bhavan as their consultant.” Kovind hails from Jhinjhak village in Kanpur Dehat district where he spent his youth and later shifted to Kanyanpur colony in Kanpur town, his deal with till date.

He stated his election is a message to all individuals who fulfil their responsibilities with honesty.
