Last time I spoke, passengers, air travel was closed, all due restrictions have now been lifted but we must follow all the COVID-19 protocols more sincerely from now on. We face many challenges, but we have managed to keep the crown under control compared to other countries with smaller populations.
We Indians have shown that service and sacrifice are a way of life. People who work for others have no problems. Service rendered by doctors, the police office is very remarkable. I have also recognized your contributions before. Everyone who works for the company respects them.
Another thing that caught my attention is the innovation of our friends. Victory over Corona will depend on innovations. A vaccine against the virus has not yet been developed.
Poor, shramik workers have suffered the most. Our friends in railways, centre, states are working day and night. Railways officials are in a way corona warriors.
The recent steps taken by centre will ensure a “Aatma nirbhar Bharat” . It is human nature to move from darkness to light. People are taking the leadership of initiatives in their own hands. Everyone is now working on their resolve towards “Make in India”. Sudip from Assam has resolved to take his bamboo product globally.
I want to share a secret today – Most of the international leaders have interest towards Yoga and Ayurveda. Everywhere people want to know more about yoga and ayurveda. Friends Yoga is important in corona times as it has lot of asanas to build stronger respiratory system.
AYUSH ministry has launched a competition for people to send their 3-minute video on yoga. I appeal to you all to take part in the competition. Our poor brothers worry about their health. For this, we had developed Ayush Bharat Yojana I want to tell you that over 1 crore beneficiaries are getting free treatment and the Ayushman Bharat scheme. Ayushman Bharat has also provided the issue of portability. A man from place where there is lack of proper healthcare, can get treatment in another state When a poor gets cured, he gets the courage to fight poverty. Our honest taxpayer are also a reason for their smiles
Bengal and Odisha has bravely faced cyclone Amphan. Locusts have shown how a small insect can create havoc across states. Adopting new innovations, I am confident we will be able to fight it.
On June 5, we celebrate world environment day. Many people have took to social media saying that they were able to see mountain kms away after decades.We have to save every drop of water. There are many ways to save water. Water that stays for 5-7 days will go to earth and improve water table I request you to plant more trees on environment day. Don’t forget to store water for birds. We should not be careless in our fight against corona. We have to continue to follow social distancing and other protocols.PM Narendra Modi
