President receives special issue of `Think India’ journal on Deendayal Upadhyay

President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday said that philosopher-politician Deendayal Upadhyay was an important national figure who enriched Indian politics and public thought through his writings and ideas. 
There is need for a broader consciousness as well as a need to rise above party politics to evaluate him and his work, he observed while receiving a copy of a special issue of the ‘Think India’ journal, devoted to the late leader at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. 
The copy was given to the President by BJP leader and Member of Parliament Murli Manohar Joshi, in the presence the Editor of the special issue. Among others Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor and Pawan Verma, were also present. 

The President remarked that he considered the special issue of the journal an attempt in the direction of rising above party politics to understand the work of Deendayal Upadhyay.
``The compilation of articles by writers belonging to different generations, political parties and persuasions is commendable,’’ he said as he lauded the effort of Mr Tripathi in putting together the special issue of the journal.

Mr Kovind said that Deendayal Upadhyay advocated cooperation in the interests of the nation, and sought to place the developmental process above narrow partisanship. 
``Mahatma Gandhi, B R Ambedkar, Ram Manohar Lohia and the late Deendayal Upadhyay carried forward Indian thought and kept it relevant to grassroots development. Along with formulating ideas, these eminent personalities worked on the ground and had practical achievements,’’ he said.
``In the same vein, Jawaharlal Nehru’s book ‘Discovery of India’ was also an important attempt to understand India's philosophical and cultural traditions, he added.

Despite conceptual distinctions, the President said, a certain unity and ethos is the hallmark of India. 
In the compilation, efforts had been made to understand Deendayal Upadhyay’s contributions through this prism, he said
