Indian President did not speak about Non-Congress Prime Ministers

Pranab Mukherjee addressing at MDU
Pranab Mukherjee, Honorable President of India, taught school students today at Rajendra Sarvoday Vidyalay in Rashtrapati Bhavan.  It is a welcome step that the constitutional Head of India came forward to teach school students on September 5, Teacher's Day. He taught about the history of Indian democracy and shared his vision and experience. He spoke about several Congress Prime Ministers including Jawaharlal Nehru, Rajeev Gandhi, Narsimha Rao and Dr. Manmohan Singh.

Surprisingly, he did not speak anything about any of the Non-Congress Prime Ministers while describing democracy and democratic strength of India. Does only Congress bring democracy in India? Can democracy exist without opposition parties?  He forgot Morarji Desai, first ever Non-Congress Prime Minister or even Atal Vehari Bajpayee, three times PM of India. I don't know why he escaped mentioning any of the Non-Congress Prime Ministers. However, it was his privilege.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also addressed school students and interacted with them. It was the first time when both the top leaders, Honorable President, and the Prime Minister. Anyway, today will be remembered for very long time for this honor to the teachers.
