A small child became a special guest during the President’s visit to Jharkhand

Ranchi. President Draupadi Murmu had reached the village of Ulihatu in Jharkhand on Tuesday to pay tribute to the memories of the tribal megastar Birsa Munda. During this visit of the President, a 10-year-old boy Dilip Munda was also called as a special guest. The child was accompanied by his mother. The President patted the boy on the back and inquired about his mother’s well being. Actually this is the child whom Draupadi Murmu had adopted five years ago when she was the governor of Jharkhand. This child named Dilip Munda, who lives in Gudabandha town of East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand, is a Class V student.

He was born in difficult circumstances, but now his dreams are high. His mother is Divyang, who was a victim of the exploitation of a Naxalite. When this child came into the world, the question was, who would take care of him? After the birth of Dilip, when the story of his mother’s helplessness came to the fore in the media, Draupadi Murmu, who was the Governor of Jharkhand at that time, took cognizance. On his instructions, the officers of the administration had reached the Raj Bhavan in Ranchi with the mother and son.

Murmu had adopted him and took the responsibility of his upbringing and education. Since then his needs are being met by Murmu and Raj Bhavan. Murmu does not forget to send gifts for this child and his mother every Diwali. Dileep and his mother were specially invited during the President’s visit on Tuesday. The President asked Dileep about his studies. Gave him affection and asked him to study diligently. Later his pictures were also tweeted from the President’s Twitter handle. Dileep is currently studying in class V in an English medium school in Dhalbhumgarh city. He aspires to become a doctor when he grows up.
