NEW DELHI,

LOK SABHA Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Sunday called outgoing President Pranab Mukherjee a “guru from whom generations of parliamentarians have received lessons”.


Addressing a gathering of MPs in the Central Hall of Parliament at a function to bid Mukherjee farewell, Mahajan said: “You have been a guru from whom generations of parliamentarians have received lessons on operational dynamics of parliamentary politics.


“You are respected for your impeccable knowledge of parliamentary rules and procedures and exemplary memory of events and precedents.”


Mahajan said Mukherjee’s life’s journey from an humble village in West Bengal to Rashtrapati Bhavan is “entwined with contemporary history of our nation and inspiring for all”.
