In his first visit as the president to the state, Kovind launched Bhairon Singh Shekhawat Antyoday Swarojgar Yojna, Sundar Singh Bhandar EBC (economically backward class) Swarojgaar Yojna and a scheme for waiver of business loan for SC/ST/OBC/differently abled at a programme here yesterday.
Kovind was served Rajasthani cuisine at dinner last night and a special cultural performance was held at Raj Bhawan, an official said.
During his visit to the dargah, he received the Bhagawad Gita from the Deewan of the shrine, Zainul Abedin Ali Khan.
Khan said that service to the nation should be given the first and foremost priority and the holy book of Gita says that one should perform Karma and not desire for the results.
"The gift was aimed at giving a message of harmony to the followers of all the religions in the country from the Ajmer dargah," Nasiruddin Chisti, the elder son of Khan, said.
At a function here yesterday, Kovind highlighted his connection and bonding with the state saying he has travelled extensively in various districts of the state over the years and feels a great connection with its rich art, culture, tradition and people.
The president will grace the inauguration of the 4th Global Exhibition on Services and launch of the 12 Champion Services initiative in Mumbai tomorrow.
On the same day, he will visit the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and an exhibition on Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) technologies. He will also inaugurate DAE facilities in Trombay, an eastern suburb in Mumbai.
