In a momentous announcement, President Droupadi Murmu has accepted the invitation to attend the Karbi Youth Festival in 2024 as the chief guest. President Murmu, who was sworn in as the 15th President of India on July 25, 2022, is known for her active engagement with cultural events and development initiatives, especially those that highlight the diverse ethnic fabric of India.
