Referring to India’s fight against Covid-19, he said: “Although, on the one hand, there are powers with great economic resources and state-of-the-art health systems, on the other hand, our country is besieged by problems in the midst of a vast population and limited resources. Many feared that India would become a problem for the world when the crown struck India. But today, through trust and resistance, it has transformed the way the world looks at us. ”
He further stated, “However, we must be careful to ensure that the inconveniences we face do not turn into disasters. Therefore, it is very important that every Indian follow all the rules and guidelines.”
Modi said the country had shown patience so far and should continue to do so. “This is one of the important reasons for India to be safer and in better shape than many other countries. This is a long battle, but we have begun to walk the path of victory, and victory is our collective determination, “he added.
The prime minister referred to the debate on how the economies will recover, expressing his confidence that India will also be an example in the economic recovery. “In the economic sphere, through their strength, 130 crore Indians can not only surprise the world but also inspire it,” he said and reiterated that the need of the hour was to become self-sufficient and refer to the recent Rs 20 lakh crore package as one step important in this direction.
He recalled some of the important decisions of his government, such as the annulment of article 370, which according to him had fostered the spirit of unity and national integration.
“The Ram Mandir ruling, unanimously handed down by the Supreme Court, ended an amicable debate that persisted for centuries. The barbaric practice of triple talaq has been limited to the dustbin of history. The amendment to the Citizenship Law was an expression of India’s compassion and spirit of inclusion, “he added.
