Some Big quotes from PM Modi’s Speech-
Today, India is working on three COVID-19 vaccines, which are at different stages of trials. Once they are closer to getting final clearances, we will announce a roadmap for distribution.
I admit there are lakhs of challenges for India to become Atma-nirbhar, and yes, there is fierce competition from the rest of the world. But I always say that if India faces lakhs of challenges, it also has 130 crore solutions.
On behalf of the entire nation, I want to thank the efforts of all corona warriors. All those healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses, who have worked tirelessly to serve the nation amid the pandemic. Many have even lost their lives. The nation salutes them. From LoC to LAC, India’s army has given a befitting reply.
As an ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic situation, the general public was not been invited to the event. Instead, 1,500 corona warriors, including 500 police personnel who have recorded from the infection, attended the function in a symbol of the citizens’ willpower to fight the pandemic and appear as winners.
