* President Droupadi Murmu who was accompanied by Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda, Chief Minister Hemant Soren, and Jharkhand Governor C.P. Radhakrishnan moved around stalls, each carrying products made by tribals inside Birsa Munda College ground on May 25, 2023.
On the second day of her visit to Jharkhand, President Droupadi Murmu moved from one stall to another stall watching products manufactured by tribals.
The stalls were packed with a plethora of handicrafts, fashionable stoles, scarves, waistcoats, bags, pickles, herbal medicines, and so on.
President Murmu, who was accompanied by Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda, Chief Minister Hemant Soren, and Jharkhand Governor C.P. Radhakrishnan, looked at tribal products displayed in 20 stalls for which several suppliers and Van Dhan Vikas Kendras of Jharkhand and Bihar participated in the exhibition.
Also, President Murmu interacted with women members of Self-Help Groups numbering more than 25,000-30,000 at the 'Mahila SHGs Sammelan' inside Birsa Munda College ground in Khunti.
Notably, Khunti ( ST Reserve Constituency) is represented in the Lok Sabha by Arjun Munda. The Sammelan was organised by the Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India and the National Scheduled Tribes Finance and Development Corporation under the aegis of the Ministry of Tribal Affairs headed by Arjun Munda.
Since the objective of the programme was to encourage women SHGs for entrepreneurship, President Droupadi Murmu’s visit appeared to have inspired many of these tribal women entrepreneurs.
On the first day of her arrival in Jharkhand on Wednesday, President Murmu paid obeisance at the Baba Baidyanath temple in the Deoghar district and inaugurated over Rs 600 crore new building of the Jharkhand High Court.
After returning from Khunti, President Murmu is slated to attend the second convocation of the IIIT in Ranchi this evening.
