COVID-19 battle in India is people-driven, asserts PM

New Delhi, Apr 26:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday saluted the spirit of countrymen and said that India’s battle against COVID-19 is being fought by its people who have shown resolve and brought about a new change in the country.

Asserting that the fight against COVID-19 was people-driven in his monthly broadcast ‘Mann Ki Baat’, he said, “Our fight against COVID-19 is truly people-driven. People of our country are fighting this war along with the administration. We are also fighting poverty. I am proud that all of us are part of it.”

“All of us are soldiers in this fight,” he underlined.

Lauding the response of the people to the nationwide lockdown, he said, “I bow and respect the 130 crore people of this country for what they are doing during this time. Every sector has been innovating during this period. Whether it is people from aviation or Railways, they are all working to make our lives easier. They are working hard to deliver medicines and other essentials to all parts of the country.”

He was of the view that society had changed. “We are realising new factors every day. We are finding new ways to appreciate people who have been helping us.”
