Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday called on the youth to assist in the country’s Covid-19 vaccination programme by dispelling “lies and rumours” surrounding it.
Addressing cadets of the NCC and NSS as well as artistes who will take part in the Republic Day parade, Prime Minister Modi also called on youngsters to lead the effort for a self-reliant India.
Exhorting the youth to help in the vaccination programme, he said it was important that the right information about vaccines be spread. “You have to give the correct information about the vaccine to the poorest of the poor, and the common citizens. By making the vaccine for coronavirus in India, India’s scientists have fulfilled their responsibility. Now, we must fulfill our responsibility. We have to defeat every instrument of lies and rumours by the right information. We have to remember that our republic is strong because it is defined by our sense of duty,” he said.
