V. V. Giri, was the fourth President of the Republic of India. Born in Orissa, his parents were active participants in the Indian independence movement. While a student of law at Dublin, Ireland, he took keen interest in the ‘Sin Fien’ Movement and was eventually expelled from the country. On returning to India, he joined the budding labour movement. He became General Secretary and then eventually, the President of the All-India Railwaymen’s Federation. He was also elected twice as President of the All-India Trade Union Congress. When the Congress Party formed a government in Madras state, he was Minister of Labour and Industries. He returned to the labour movement briefly when the Congress government resigned and launched the Quit India Movement. After India became independent, he was appointed High Commissioner in Ceylon and in 1952 was elected to the Lok Sabha. He was made Minister of Labour in the central government but resigned in 1954. Next, he was appointed successively to the Governorships of Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, and Karnataka. In 1967, he was elected Vice President of India. When President Zakir Husain died two year later, he became Acting President and decided to contest for Presidency. Supported by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, he won the position by a narrow margin. He was later succeeded in office by Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed.
