Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 6th, 2020 said that the fight against novel coronavirus (COVID-19) would be a long one and that the country today has pledged to win the war against the high contagious virus.
Modi addressed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members on the occasion of the 40th Foundation Day of the party on April 6th, 2020.
“The world is going through a difficult time. Humanity is facing a crisis. We have to create our path during this challenging time and emerge victoriously,” said Modi.
The Prime Minister also mentioned that the country’s efforts to combat COVID-19 have set an example as it took timely decisions to combat the virus.
India’s coronavirus death count crossed 100, with over 4,000 people being infected so far.
Modi also appreciated the “maturity and seriousness” shown by the public during the lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus.
Urging to the nation to join hands to fight against coronavirus, the Prime Minister urged BJP workers to follow a five-point agenda, chalked out by party president JP Nadda, during the crisis period.
“Fight against coronavirus is no less than war,” Modi said appealing the workers to ensure that no poor go hungry.
He also appealed to the BJP workers to donate and encourage others to contribute to the PM-CARES fund.
