New Delhi: In a heartwarming gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Pranab Mukherjee’s last day as President, he sent him a letter that expressed his profound admiration for him much beyond that and called the former President a ‘father figure’.
PM Modi in the letter told Mukherjee he was more than moved that the two of them ‘were able to work together with synergy’ despite different political ideologies having shaped them.
He also talked of Mukherjee’s “intellectual prowess” and his deep “insights on various subjects” helping the government and him personally.
Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday took it to twitter to share the letter and said those words ‘touched’ his ‘heart’.
