Mann Ki Baat: Let us pray world may be free of coronavirus by Eid next month, says PM Modi
PM Modi Mann Ki Baat Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to nation in his monthly radio programme "Mann Ki Baat", said that India's fight against coronavirus is people-driven. "In the middle of this pandemic, the farmers are ensuring that no one sleeps hungry in our country. Each person is fighting this war as per their own capacity. Some are waiving off house rent, also some labourers who are in quarantine at a school are whitewashing the school among others," PM Modi said.
He mentioned that this virus has made masks an important part of our lives. "It doesn't mean that all of those who are wearing are sick. Masks will become a new symbol of a civilised society. If you want to protect yourself and others from the disease, the use of a mask is important."
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Modi said that he had been getting 'insightful inputs' for this Mann Ki Baat speech and urged people to tune in to listen to him. "Have been getting several insightful inputs for this month's #MannKiBaat. Do tune at 11 am tomorrow," the Prime Minister wrote.
With more than a month into the lockodown, a measure to arrest the spread of coronavirus in India, the number of cases now stands at 26,496 with 824 fatalities.
