Centre accords CRPF 'Z plus' category security cover to former president Ram Nath Kovind, officials said. According to reports, the decision to provide Z plus security cover to Ram Nath Kovind has been taken after getting various intelligence reports.

As per norms, the central security cover is given after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) reviews threat assessment reports prepared by the central security agencies against possible terrorist and sabotage threats it could face.

Former President Ram Nath Kovind moved out of the Rashtrapati Bhavan, home to the President, on July 25.

Ram Nath Kovind and his wife Savita Kovind will now be neighbors to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who resides at 10, Janpath.

In his last speech as the President, Ram Nath Kovind expressed his gratitude to all Indians. “Five years ago, you put faith in me and elected me as the president. I express my gratitude to all the Indians and their public representatives," Ram Nath Kovind said.

“Ram Nath Kovind, who grew up in a very ordinary family in Paraunkh village of Kanpur Dehat district, is addressing all of you countrymen today, for this, I salute the power of the vibrant democratic system of our country," the former President had said.

He said, “Mother Nature is in deep agony and the climate crisis can endanger the very future of this planet. We must take care of our environment, our land, air and water for the sake of our children."

"In our daily lives and routine choices, we must be more careful to protect our trees, rivers, seas and mountains as well as all other living beings. As the first citizen, if I have to give one advice to my fellow citizens, it has to be this," he added.
