Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held an interaction with representatives of religious and social organizations through video conferencing to discuss the Covid-19 situation. He said that the interaction is yet another example of society and government working together for the benefit of the country. Mr Modi appreciated the work done by these organizations towards meeting the challenges posed by Covid-19. He said, the help provided to people was beyond caste or religious considerations and was a shining example of Ek Bharat-Eknishtha Prayas.

This will go a long way in helping our health workers reach out to each and every citizen.

The Prime Minister also asked the leaders to be a part of the celebration of 75 years of independence. He asked them to ensure that everyone becomes a part of Azaadi ka Amrut Mahotsav. He said that on this occasion, we should work toward uniting the entire length and breadth of the nation through a Bharat Jodo Aandolan and showcase the true spirit of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’.
