"poverty should be eliminated from the dictionary of modern India"

Another one of those politicians. Hopefully India will be able to recover.

If someone took that seriously, it would be an extremely hilarious solution to poverty. "Mr. President, what do you intend to do about the Poverty Level?" "Oh, we don't have one any more, poverty no longer exists in the dictionary".

Pranab Mukherjee is considered as an excellent consensus builder and political troubleshooter for the ruling coalition. He is having supporters among all political parties. He was the most senior and respected political leader in India. Seniority is considered very important here.

On other hand he had a very terrible stint as finance minister and everybody was losing patience. So the post of president for him is relief for everybody. He gets a respectable promotion, at the same time he is eased out of finance.

The president of India is merely a titular head of republic. The real power lies with the Prime Minister. So noble statements banning poverty do no harm.

Wasn't he Finance Minister before running? And doesn't India now have rampant inflation?

You mean the second world country has high inflation? How surprising. It's not like every other country in similar positions has such growth, the growth being desirable to start being competitive with modern world leaders, etc. etc. etc. ...
