Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation through his monthly radio programme and spoke about a number of issues like the Indo-China relations and COVID-19 pandemic.
While he understood that hardships are being faced by all due to COVID-19, the situation is gravest for the poor. He also said that such a situation could have been avoided had our villages, districts and states had been self-reliant.
The number of cases in the country have crossed the 5 lakh mark and have seen 3 lakh+ recoveries and about 16,000 deaths.
He also talked about creating an advanced infrastructure to handle all the problems. The unlock period can be dangerous, thus, also urged people to be safe.
“We are in the time of unlocking. But, we have to be even more careful. If you do not wear masks and do not maintain social distancing, then you might put other’s lives at risk as well. Take care of yourselves as well as others.”
While addressing the Indo- China situation is related to the Galwan clash, he said that India fought with bravery and gave a tough battle to the soldiers trying to occupy our territory. He also said that the loss of the Indian soldiers is felt by everyone. However, we should consider this our strength and move forward.
“Our soldiers have proven that they will not let any trouble overcome the country.” He said
He also praised former Prime Minister Narasimha Rao and how he led India through a crucial time in History with bravery. He urged citizens to read about him as wells.
Other points of discussion were bringing back traditional Indian games for the people staying at home. He urged friends and start ups to make these popular.
