Mukherjee launched one of India’s biggest selfie social scheme — ‘Selfie with Daughter’, as part of the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao initiative, in June this year. The former president has been a regular on Twitter even after leaving office and has switched his Twitter handle to ‘Citizen Mukherjee’ to reflect his changed status.
