After meeting PM Modi, Murmu also met Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Shah greeted her and honoured her with a shawl and bouquet.

If elected, a strong possibility given that Murmu (64) already has the support of a majority in the electoral college, she will be the first tribal person to be the President of India.
