India Taking Landmark Step In Fighting COVID-19 : PM Modi

 New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that India will take a landmark step forward in fighting COVID-19 as it begins the nation-wide vaccination drive. PM Modi said priority will be given to "our brave doctors, healthcare workers, frontline workers including Safai Karamcharis" in the coronavirus vaccine rollout. 

Noting India's image as the world's pharmacy, PM Modi said it is ready with two locally manufactured COVID-19 vaccines to "protect" humanity, and asserted the world is not only waiting for them but also watching as to how the nation runs the globe's biggest vaccination programme.

In his address at the inauguration of the 16th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) Convention, Modi also said that if democracy is most strong, vibrant and lively anywhere in the world, it is in India despite the grim forecasts about its survival in the country at the time of independence. 

He urged Indian diaspora to use more and more made-in-India products, saying it will inspire confidence among those living around them to use these items as well.

Indian diaspora has a crucial role in boosting 'brand India' as the country advances towards self-reliance, the prime minister said.

Talking about India's fight against the coronavirus pandemic, he said the country is among the nations with the lowest fatality rate and the highest recovery rate.

"Being the pharmacy of the world, India has supplied important medicines to all those in need in the world in the past and is also doing so now. The world is not only waiting for Indian vaccines but is also watching how India runs the world's biggest vaccination programme," he said.

Solutions prepared by India will benefit the entire world, the prime minister said, adding the country's pharma industry has shown that if the nation is capable in any field, this helps everyone.
