New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again addressed the country amidst lockdown. While he appreciated the measures and decisions taken by the Central and State Governments on the one hand to overcome the Corona crisis, he also thanked the countrymen. At the center of this address was a package of 20 lakh crores announced by him. Not only this, but he has also made it clear that Lockdown 4 will be in a new color form whose rules will be communicated to the countrymen before May 18. In this address of PM Modi, there was a roadmap to give economic strength to the country. He had met the Chief Ministers of the states on Corona even before this promotion and was to know his views. Let’s know some important things about his address.
In this address, PM Modi showed the roadmap for turning the time of this crisis into an opportunity. To achieve this goal, he has announced a package of 20 lakh crores keeping in mind every section of the country. He said that within the next few days, the Finance Minister will announce it in a phased manner. There will be something for everyone including farmers, laborers, industries of the country.
During the lockdown till now, the workers, villagers, and people whose work is being eaten daily have suffered the most trouble. Now the time has come for all of us to do something for them together and strengthen them.
PM Modi said that Lockdown 4 will have a completely new look. This lockdown will work to make the country self-sufficient by following the strict rules of every country. Everyone will be vigilant about their safety and will also ensure the safety of their close ones. Suggestions were also sought from states for a decision on the lockdown. The new rules of Lockdown 4 will also be made fully public before May 18.
During the lockdown due to the Corona crisis, India has moved towards becoming self-reliant. Before the Corona crisis, where we used to make nominal PPE kits and N95 masks in India, now we are making two lakh PPE and the same number of N95 masks every day. During this time we have successfully moved towards our local brand. At the same time, our local brand has played a big role in meeting the demand of the country. Now the time has come that we should adopt these local brands more and more and strengthen them. He said that many big brands of the world that we use with pride today were once local. But the people there adopted and appreciated and also promoted them. Only then could they become a global brand. Now we have to take forward our local brand which will be helpful in making the country self-reliant.
He said that it has been more than four months since the world had been competing with Corona. During this period more than 42 lakh people of the world have suffered from it and more than 1.75 lakh people have died tragically. In India too, people have lost their loved ones. We express our condolences to them. A virus has destroyed the world. Crores of lives are facing a crisis in the world. The whole world is busy saving lives. We have never seen nor heard of such a crisis before. It is unimaginable for mankind. This crisis is unprecedented. But in this too we have to not get tired, nor lose and fall apart. We have to be vigilant and protect ourselves by following the rules of this war and move forward. Today, when the world is in crisis, we have to strengthen our resolve. Our resolve should be greater than this crisis.
We have been hearing from the last century that the 21st century belongs to India. Amidst the crisis, the whole world is looking at India with great enthusiasm. In such a situation, our responsibility also increases. The situation teaches us that this crisis can only be overcome by being self-reliant. As a nation today we stand at a turning point. This disaster has brought a signal and message to India. It also has an opportunity.
