Pranab Mukherjee who tested coronavirus positive is on ventilator support in Delhi’s Army Hospital. His physical condition is deteriorating. Mahamrityujnya Yajna and Puja are being performed by the residents of Kirnahar in Birbhum for speedy recovery. This puja will continue for three days.
Mahamrityunjaya Yajna is being performed since Tuesday at Japeshwar Shiva Temple in Kirnahar, Birbhum for his speedy recovery.
Locals are offering sacrifices in the fire of Yajna. According to sources, this yajna will continue for three days.
Not only the state, but he has always been at the centre of national politics. During the UPA era, Pranab Mukherjee was in charge of important ministries like foreign affairs, home affairs, and defence. He is still the only Bengali to become the President of the country.
Pranab Mukherjee spent most of his long political life in Delhi, but he has never lost touch with his own village in Mirati, Kirnahar, Birbhum.
Every year he takes part in Durga Puja as per norms at his ancestral home in his village. The Union minister, even after becoming the President, did not break this practice.
After the expiration of his term as President, he decided to reside in Delhi. Pranab Mukherjee fell in the bathroom a few days ago and suffered a serious head injury. On August 10, he was admitted to the Army Hospital in Delhi. Doctors have found blood clots in his brain.
There was no way other than conducting brain surgery. In the routine examination before the surgery, he tested COVID-19 positive. Pranab Mukherjee is now on ventilator after the operation.
The locals are offering sacrifices in the fire of Yajna. According to sources, this yajna will continue for three days.
