India may finally get its first tribal President, with BJP naming Droupadi Murmu (64), a Santhal from Odisha, as its candidate for the top constitutional office. BJP chief JP Nadda declared Murmu’s candidature after a meeting of the party’s parliamentary board approved what is widely considered to be Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s choice for Rashtrapati Bhavan.
