In ‘Mann ki Baat’ PM Modi urged people to seek information only through reliable sources

New Delhi;25/4/21: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the nation on his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ as India continues to battle the frightening surge in the Covid-19 cases and deaths.

During the 76th episode of ‘Mann ki Baat’ PM Modi urged people to seek information only through reliable sources regarding the prevailing situation.

“I urge people to not fall prey to any rumors about vaccination. You all must be aware that the Government of India has sent free vaccines to all State Governments. All people above 45 years of age can benefit from this. From May 1st, vaccines will be available for every person above 18 years of age,” the Prime Minister said. He added that now, even corporate sectors can participate in the vaccination drive by getting their employees vaccinated.

“I am expressing Mann Ki Baat at a time when Corona is testing our patience; it is testing the limits of all of us at enduring misery. Many of our near and dear ones have left us untimely. After successfully confronting the first wave of Corona, the country was full of enthusiasm, full of self-confidence, but this storm has shaken the country. Friends, in the days gone by, to tide over this crisis, I had long deliberations with experts from myriad sectors. People from our Pharma industry, vaccine manufacturers, those connected with oxygen production, experts from the medical field have put forth their valuable suggestions to the government. This time, for emerging victorious in this battle, we have to accord priority to expert and scientific advice. The Government of India is applying its entire might to give a fillip to the endeavors of State Governments. The State Governments too are trying their best to fulfill their responsibilities,” the PM said.
