President Murmu in Shimla on 5-day official visit to Himachal

Shimla, May 4 (UNI) President Droupadi Murmu arrived in Shimla on Saturday beginning her five-day visit to Himachal Pradesh from May 4 to 8.

She landed at Kalyani Helipad at 10.35 am from a special airforce helicopter and was received by Governor Shiv Partap Shukla.

Murmu was originally scheduled to land at the Jubberhati Airport at 11 am, however, a clear weather prompted the President’s aircraft to land at Kalyani Helipeds which is near Rashtrapati Niwas, previously known as the Retreat, the president’s summer home in Shimla.
