Former President of the country Pranab Mukherjee, who had been ill for some time, died on Monday. His son Abhijeet Mukherjee gave this information. He is being treated at the Army Research and Referral Hospital at Delhi Cantt. This morning it was reported from the hospital that he was under septic shock due to a lung infection.
Mukherjee, 84, was in a deep coma and was put on ventilator support. Blood pressure stops working in the event of a septic shock and body parts fail to get enough oxygen. He was admitted to the military hospital in Delhi Cantt on 10 August. Earlier, his corona report also came positive.
Mukherjee underwent an operation after a blood clot formed in his brain. He was also found infected with Kovid-19 at the time of hospitalization. He then had respiratory infections. Mukherjee served as the 13th President of India from the year 2012 to 2017. Former President Mukherjee has two sons and a daughter in his family.
President was formed in 2012, respect was in all parties
In 2012, Pranab Mukherjee became the President of the country. He was the 13th President of India. However, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s first choice for the post was Hamid Ansari. But Mukherjee was the choice of many regional political parties. It also showed that despite political differences, Pranab Mukherjee had acceptance among all political parties.
This dream of ‘PM in waiting’ remained incomplete
Pranab Mukherjee was the strongest contender for the post of Prime Minister in UPA and Congress. He was also known as ‘PM in Waiting’. But in his luck, the address of Rashtrapati Bhavan was written, not the seven Race Course Road. In his book ‘The Coalition Years – 1996-2012’ written on his journey, he himself admitted that he wanted to become Prime Minister.
PM Modi wanted Mukherjee to remain President
As president, he saw the UPA being ousted from power and the BJP forming an absolute majority government. On many occasions he did not back down from praising the Modi government. Prime Minister Modi also wanted Pranab da to accept a second term as President. But it was rejected by Pranab citing age and health.
