Ms. Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 last week. Pranab Mukherjee said that, it is upto the leaders of India and Pakistan to decide whether they should attend the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Norway.
Pranab Mukherjee said, “I don’t want to make any comment which is on the verge of a political comment. Constitutionally, the Indian President is above day to day politics”.
The visiting leader said that, “The day I decided to fight the Presidential election, I severed my connections of more than four and half decades with my party…So, what the leaders [of India and Pakistan] should do or not do, I leave it to them. I would not like to make any comment”.
