"Today, we are meeting after a long gap of 2 years. All our COVID-19 warriors have worked dedicatedly to fight this pandemic. Today with more than 108 crore COVID-19 vaccinations, the inoculation drive is continuing across the country," he added.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and Union Home Minister Amit Shah were also present at the Conference. As per Rashtrapati Bhavan's press release, this will be the fourth conference to be presided over by President Kovind.

The conference of governors is a tradition almost as old as the country's independence. The first conference of governors was held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in 1949. It was presided over by C Rajagopalachari, the last Governor-General of India.
