PAYS TRIBUTE TO ‘OLD FRIENDS’
KANPUR: Known for his simplicity, President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday visited the families of his friends whom he lost in recent time. One of them was the one with whom the President used to go on scooter ride when studying in Kanpur. He stayed at the residence of Dr Gyan Chand Agarwal for about ten minutes before leaving for the residence of Anand Bhargava. The president interacted with the family members and paid homage to his friends, both of whom had passed away in December after prolonged illness. He also visited the family members of Dr Ishwar Chand Gupta who had died in November. All the three were RSS functionaries and Kovind knew them since 1989.
