Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India is fighting Covid 19 with all its might and will emerge victorious against the second wave of pandemic also. In his Mann Ki Baat programme, Mr Modi said, the nation’s resolve to prevail over the virus is equal to the magnitude of the challenge it faces. The Prime Minister said the country fought the first wave of Corona courageously and it will be victorious in its ongoing fight against the virus during the second wave also.
Mr Modi said, this is a crisis that has plagued the whole world and so many people have lost their loved ones. He said even big countries have not been spared from its devastation.
The Prime Minister said the nation followed the mantra of “sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas” and that India now moves ahead and not under the pressure of other countries but with its own convictions.
Mr Modi spoke to a number of people ranging from those engaged in transporting medical oxygen to lab technicians during his Mann Ki Baat programme.
The Prime Minister noted that the nation also faced several natural disasters, including cyclones, landslides and earthquakes during the pandemic, and said more lives were saved than in the past with the Centre, states and local administrations coming together to carry out relief and rescue operations.
