Former President Pranab Mukherjee today shared a letter he had received from Prime Minister Narendra Modi before leaving Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Pranab Mukherjee posted the letter on Twitter and said it “touched my heart”.

In the letter, Narendra Modi thanked Pranab Mukherjee for being a “father figure” and a “mentor”. “Your intellectual prowess has constantly helped my government and me,” the Prime Minister wrote.

Narendra Modi said that despite coming different parties and, at times having different ideologies, it was the “strength of your (Pranab da) intellect and wisdom that we were able to work together with synergy”.

“During your political journey and your presidency, you placed the well-being of the nation over everything else… You belong to a generation of leaders for whom politics was simply a means to selflessly give back to society,” Modi wrote in the farewell letter to Pranab Mukherjee.

Hailing Pranab Mukherjee as an inspiration for people, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “India will always be proud of you, a President who was a humble public servant and an exceptional leader”.

As Pranab Mukherjee shared the letter with people, Narendra Modi replied: “Pranab Da, I will always cherish working with you”.
