New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India has successfully dealt with natural calamities during the Corona epidemic.
Speaking on ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Prime Minister Modi said: Our country is fighting hard against the corona epidemic. Corona is the largest epidemic in the last 100 years. At the same time, India is facing natural disasters. We also experienced Amban storm and Nisark storm. Many states were flooded. There was also a small earthquake. The landslide came.
India has been very successful in dealing with natural disasters even during the Great Depression. It has been proven that no matter how many problems come up, we will deal with it with determination. India has experienced two storms in the last 10 days. Typhoon Dukte hit the east coast and Yas hit the west coast. Many states were affected.
The country and the people fought hard against the storm and reduced the death toll. I would like to thank all those who worked tirelessly during the storms and rainy seasons. I extend my deepest condolences to all those who lost their close relatives.
Over the past few days, we have seen doctors, nurses and frontline staff working day and night, regardless of selfishness. They are still working. There are many who have played a key role in all of this. At the same time, some more are serving as frontline staff in helping people during this corona second wave. People have told me to mention them.
When the second wave hit India, the demand for oxygen increased exponentially and became a major challenge. Providing oxygen to distant places was a big challenge. It currently produces 9,500 metric tons of oxygen per day. Thus he spoke.
The Prime Minister had separate talks with Dinesh Upadhyay, an oxygen tanker driver from Juanpur, Uttar Pradesh, Shirisha, an Oxygen Express train associated with Captain Patnaik, an Air Force Captain, and Aditi, an 8th class student.
Then, as the Prime Minister speaks, you are not only driving during these test times, you are the one who will save millions of lives. .Railways helped to transport oxygen to every part of the country by Oxygen Express to meet the sudden demand for oxygen. Glad the women operated the Oxygen Express trains. Our troopers acted during the Corona just as they did during the war. Thus spoke Modi.
