BHOPAL: It was not only Kanpur district which celebrated the triumph of its son Ram Nath Kovind in the presidential election on Thursday. Celebrations broke out in Guna in Madhya Pradesh, where Kovind’s elder brother Ram Swaroop Kovind and family live.

Hanuman Colony in Guna (200 km from Bhopal) burst into celebrations after Kovind’s victory was declared with his retired accountant brother Ram Swaroop Kovind participating enthusiastically. Residents of the locality danced to drumbeats and Kovind’s elder brother distributed sweets all around.

Ram Swaroop will leave with son Karan on July 22 to attend the newly elected president’s swearing-in ceremony in New Delhi. He said he hoped his brother as country’s first citizen will become the voice of the exploited and marginalised sections. 

He also expressed confidence that as supreme commander of Indian defence forces, his brother will leave no stone unturned in safeguarding the nation’s borders and wage a war against corruption.

Residents of the locality expressed the hope that the newly elected president will visit Guna in the next six months.
