PM Modi- Mates, the nation salutes these troopers of ours, these warriors of ours for the work that they’ve carried out. Equally, hundreds of thousands of individuals are toiling day and evening. The duties they’re performing will not be a part of their routine work. One of these catastrophe has hit the world in 100 years. We have now met such an enormous calamity after a century, subsequently, nobody had any expertise of this type of work. Behind it lies the spirit of service for the nation, and energy of resolve. For this reason the nation has been in a position to do work that has by no means been carried out earlier than. You may guess for your self, in regular circumstances we used to supply 900 Metric Tonnes of liquid medical oxygen in a day. Now, it has expanded to producing greater than 10 occasions the traditional output and producing round 9500 Metric Tonnes per day. Our warriors are transporting this oxygen to far-flung corners of the nation.
My expensive countrymen, so many efforts had been made within the nation to distribute and supply oxygen, so many individuals got here collectively that as a citizen, all these endeavors encourage you. Everybody has carried out their obligation as a part of a group. I’ve been informed by Urmila ji from Bengaluru that her husband is a lab technician, and the way he has been repeatedly performing activity of testing within the midst of so many challenges.
Mates, originally of Corona, there was just one testing lab within the nation, however right this moment greater than two and a half thousand labs are in operation. Initially, just a few hundred checks could possibly be performed in a day, now greater than 20 lakh checks are being carried out in a single day. Up to now, greater than 33 crore samples have been examined within the nation. This enormous activity is made doable solely due to our colleagues like these talked about. There are numerous frontline employees engaged within the work of pattern assortment, going amidst contaminated sufferers, and taking their pattern is an instance of yeoman service. To guard themselves, these pals must put on PPE Package repeatedly even in sweltering warmth. After that the pattern reaches the lab. Subsequently, once I was studying your options and queries, I made a decision that these pals engaged in such companies also needs to be mentioned. We may also get to know loads from their experiences. So now let’s discuss to our pal Prakash Kandpal ji who works as a lab technician in Delhi.
Modi ji – Prakash ji Namaskar

So I would really like that via your account the countrymen may also get details about how work is happening within the nation.

Even earlier than ILBS, I’ve labored in prestigious establishments like Apollo Hospital, Rajiv Gandhi Most cancers Hospital, Rotary Blood Financial institution, Delhi. Sir, though in all of those medical establishments I served within the blood financial institution division, however since 1st April, 2020 final 12 months, I’ve been working within the Covid testing lab beneath the Virology division of ILBS.
Undoubtedly throughout the Covid pandemic, there was lots of pressure on all of the means and assets associated to well being however I personally take into account this part of cataclysm as a chance throughout which the nation, humanity, society expects and hopes for show of all that extra duty, cooperation, power and functionality from us. And sir, when in line with the expectation and hope of the nation, humanity and society, we perform at our optimum which is the same as a drop of water, we work in line with these requirements and measure upto them, then there’s a feeling of satisfaction.

So that they too perceive this factor and in a manner additionally they cooperate with me and so they additionally contribute in no matter type of cooperation there’s throughout the time of this calamity.
Modi ji – Prakash ji, on one hand the federal government is advocating everybody to maintain a distance –or preserve distance from one another throughout the Corona pandemic. And you must be within the midst of the corona virus by being on the forefront. It’s important to encounter it from the entrance. So it’s a life-threatening affair in itself, and subsequently it is rather pure for the household to be nervous. However nonetheless, this lab technician’s job is likely one of the widespread professions. And in such a pandemic, one other dimension will get added to the work that you’re doing. Subsequently the working hours will need to have elevated. You should be spending many an in a single day within the lab. And since so many crores of individuals are being examined, the burden will need to have additionally elevated. However to your personal security additionally, do you are taking precautions or not?
Prakash ji –Sure Sir, we do. Our ILBS lab is accredited by WHO, and thus all of the protocols noticed are of worldwide requirements. We observe the three-tier security protocol almost about our gown. We go to lab in it, and carrying it we work. After which there’s a full protocol of discarding the gown, one other for labelling and likewise for testing! We work beneath these protocols. So sir, it’s God’s grace that my household and most of my acquaintances are nonetheless untouched by this an infection. And there’s one factor that, if you’re cautious and observe warning you may keep away from it to an extent.
Modi ji – Prakash ji, hundreds of individuals like you’ve gotten been stationed within the labs for the final one 12 months and have been doing such arduous work, saving innumerable individuals, about which the nation is attending to know right this moment!

The type of exhausting work and dedication that our pals like Bhai Prakash ji are placing of their work, that very quantum of cooperation from them will enormously assist in defeating Corona.
My expensive countrymen, whereas at current we had been discussing our ‘Corona Warriors’ we now have been a witness of their dedication and exhausting work within the final one and a half years. However there additionally has been a really massive function on this struggle displayed by many such warriors throughout the nation. Assume for your self, our nation confronted such an enormous disaster that it affected each system of the nation. The agricultural sector protected itself from this assault to a terrific extent. Not solely did it preserve itself protected, however the sector additionally progressed, shifting ahead. Have you learnt that even on this pandemic, our farmers have achieved report produce! The farmers produced report output and this time the nation went on to acquire report quantity of crops. This time in lots of locations farmers have gotten greater than the minimal assist value (MSP) for mustard. As a result of report meals grain manufacturing, our nation has been in a position to present assist to each countryman. At the moment, 800 million underprivileged denizens are being supplied free ration on this hour of disaster. So, no such a day ever happens in a needy residence when the range will not be lit!
Mates, right this moment the farmers of our nation are doing wonders in lots of areas by making the most of the brand new preparations. Take for instance, the farmers of Agartala. These farmers produce superb jackfruit harvest. Anticipating their demand within the nation and overseas, this time the jackfruit of farmers of Agartala was dropped at Guwahati by rail. These jackfruit are actually being despatched to London from Guwahati. Equally, you have to have additionally heard the title of the Shahi Litchi of Bihar. In 2018, the Authorities additionally gave GI Tag to Shahi Litchi in order that its id can be strengthened and the farmers would get extra advantages. This time the Shahi Litchi of Bihar has additionally been despatched to London by air. From East to West, North to South our nation is stuffed with such distinctive flavors and merchandise. It’s essential to positively have heard concerning the mangoes of Vizianagaram in South India. Now who would not prefer to eat this mango? Subsequently, now the Kisan Rail is ferrying tons of of tons of Vizianagaram mangoes to Delhi. The individuals of Delhi and North India will get to eat Vizianagaram mangoes, and the farmers of Vizianagaram will earn nicely. The Kisan Rail has to date transported practically 2 lakh tonnes of produce. Now the farmers are in a position to ship fruits, greens, grains to different distant components of the nation at a really low value.
My expensive countrymen, right this moment on 30th Could we’re having ‘Mann Ki Baat’ and by the way it additionally marks the completion of seven years of the federal government. Over these years, the nation has adopted the mantra of ‘Sabka-Saath, Sabka-Vikas, Sabka-Vishwas’. All of us have labored each second with dedication within the service of the nation. Many pals have despatched me letters and stated that in ‘Mann Ki Baat’, I also needs to talk about our mutual journey of seven years. Mates, no matter we now have completed in these 7 years, it has been of the nation, of the countrymen. Collectively, we now have skilled many moments of nationwide satisfaction in these years. After we observe that now India strikes forward not with the thought and stress of different nations however along with her personal conviction, then all of us really feel proud. After we witness that now India provides a befitting reply to those that conspire towards us, then our confidence soars. When India doesn’t compromise on the problems of nationwide safety, when the power of our armed forces will increase, we really feel that sure, we’re on the appropriate path.
Mates, I get messages and letters from numerous countrymen spanning each nook of the nation. Many individuals are grateful to the nation that electrical energy has reached their village for the primary time in 70 years, that their little kids are learning within the gentle, beneath the fan. Many individuals say that our village too is now linked to town by a paved highway. I bear in mind some pals from a tribal space had despatched me a message that after the highway was constructed, for the primary time they felt that they too had joined the remainder of the world. Equally, somebody shares the enjoyment of opening a checking account, somebody begins a brand new employment with the assistance of various schemes, then additionally they invite me in sharing that happiness. I preserve receiving many invites from our countrymen for the event of ‘GrihPravesh’ – the home warming ceremony, after receiving their residence beneath the ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’. In these 7 years, I’ve been related to one million moments of your happiness. Only a few days in the past, a household from a village despatched me a photograph of the water faucet put in of their home beneath the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’. They’d captioned the picture ‘मेरेगाँवकीजीवनधारा’ – the lifeline of my village, there are a lot of such households! Within the 7 many years after independence, solely three and a half crore rural properties of our nation had water connections. Nevertheless, simply within the final 21 months, 4 and a half crore homes have been given clear water connections. Of those, 15 months had been of the Corona interval! An identical confidence has come to the nation via the ‘Ayushman Yojana’. When the poor come residence wholesome with free remedy, they really feel that they’ve a brand new life. They really feel assured that the nation stands by them. With the blessing of such households, the blessings of crores of moms, our nation is shifting in direction of improvement with power.
Mates, in these 7 years, India has labored to indicate the world a brand new course in digital transactions. At the moment, you can also make digital funds with absolute ease at anyplace; it’s proving very helpful even on this time of Corona. At the moment, the seriousness and consciousness of the countrymen in direction of cleanliness is rising. We’re additionally launching report satellites and setting up report roads too. In these 7 years, many aged contestations of the nation have additionally been resolved with full peace and concord. A brand new confidence of peace and improvement has arisen from the northeast to Kashmir. Mates, have you ever thought all such work which couldn’t be achieved even in many years, how had been they carried out in these 7 years? All this was doable as a result of in these 7 years, greater than because the Authorities or because the individuals, we labored collectively as one nation. We labored as a group. We labored as Staff India. Each citizen has tried to take just a few steps ahead in advancing the nation. Sure! The place there are successes, there are additionally trials. In these 7 years collectively, we now have overcome many tough checks as nicely, and every time we now have all emerged stronger. Within the type of the Corona pandemic, we’re being repeatedly put to check. It is a disaster that has plagued the entire world, so many individuals have misplaced their family members. Even massive nations weren’t spared from its devastation. Within the midst of this pandemic, India is shifting ahead with the resolve of ‘सेवा और सहयोग’- ‘service and cooperation’. Within the first wave, we fought courageously; this time too India might be victorious within the ongoing struggle towards the virus. Be it ‘दो गज की दूरी’ social distancing, guidelines associated to masks or vaccines, there must be no letup in our efforts. This certainly is the trail to our victory.
