Former President Pranab Mukherjee's daughter and Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee today shared some old pictures of the ex-president taking part in Independence Day celebrations as he "continues to be on ventilatory support", according to a hospital bulletin on Saturday morning, days after he underwent a surgery to remove a clot in his brain.

"In his childhood, my dad and my uncle would hoist National Flag at our ancestral home in village. Since then, he never missed a year to hoist tri-colour on Independence Day. Sharing some memories from last year's celebration at home. I'm sure he'll do the same next year. Jai Hind," the 54-year-old daughter of the former president wrote and shared some old pictures of Mukherjee.


India is celebrating its 74th Independence Day on Saturday. The celebrations at Delhi's iconic Red Fort on Saturday morning were a low-key affair due to the coronavirus pandemic.
