During his address to the nation, President Ram Nath Kovind highlighted India’s fight against Covid-19 as well as strategies being adopted by the country to excel in a post-Covid world.
“It gives me great pleasure to greet all the people of India, living in the country and abroad, on the eve of the 74th Independence Day,” President Kovind said.
The President said that the celebrations of Independence Day this year will be rather restrained. “The reason is obvious. The whole world confronts a deadly virus that has disrupted all activities and taken a huge toll. It has altered the world we lived in before the pandemic,” he said.
President Kovind said that it was very reassuring to note that the central government while anticipating the tremendous challenge, responded effectively and well in time.
“For a country so vast and diverse with high population density, meeting this challenge requires super-human efforts,” the President said.
President Ram Nath Kovind also created state governments for taking measures in accordance with local circumstances to fight the pandemic. “With our committed efforts, we have succeeded in containing the magnitude of the pandemic and saving a large number of lives. This is worth emulating by the wider world,” he said.
