The President was a college teacher and a journalist before he joined politics in the year 1969. The President Pranab Mukherjee held a joint class for the students of the same school last year too. The students assembled on the ‘knowledge floor’ to listen to their new teacher. The idea was mooted by Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and deputy chief minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia.
