As India crosses the figure of administering 50 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccine to the people, it achieves a crucial milestone in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic. At the same time the approval given to single dose ‘Johnson & Johnson’ vaccine is set to further speed up the vaccination programme in the country. While the pandemic is affecting the entire world, the launch of world’s largest and fastest vaccination drive in India by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has further strengthened the nation’s resolve to secure life of every individual in the country. While the free vaccination drive is ensuring the health of every individual in the country, the free ration under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana is ensuring that no one remains hungry in the country in the time of pandemic. Today, under the dynamic and charismatic leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has not only emerged as a country which has faced challenges of Covid-19 pandemic unitedly, but also as a country which stood by other countries in the world in their time of crisis.
In a historic decision, the Modi government has granted 27% reservation to OBC community and 10% reservation to Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) of the society in medical colleges across the country. It is to be noted that in the last five years the Modi government has opened 179 new medical colleges increasing 80% seats in PG courses and 56% seats in UG courses. While special focus of Modi government has been on improving health infrastructure and on imparting quality medical education, the commitment to create a more equitable society has also remained paramount in its policies and schemes. As a responsible government committed to the welfare of poor, deprived, exploited and oppressed, the Modi government has been creating more and more opportunities for the SC, ST, OBC and EWS communities making them key partners in the onward march of the nation. The inclusion of 27 OBC ministers, 20 SC/ST ministers and 11 women ministers in the newly expanded Council of Ministers shows the commitment of the Modi government to bring every section of the society together in fulfilling the aspirations of the New India. The decision to give constitutional status to OBC Commission and by increasing the reach of pre-matric scholarship along with a large number of welfare schemes empowering poor, deprived, oppressed and exploited sections has given new hope to the toiling masses who are now becoming new source of possibilities for the nation.
BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda has recently launched a new programme preparing lacs of ‘Swasthya Swayamsevak’ (Frontline Health Volunteers) across the country to face challenges of Covid-19 pandemic. These ‘Swasthya Swayamsevaks’ are trained so as to enable them to serve the people in time of need and also take preventive steps to stop the spread of pandemic. It is to be noted that millions of BJP Karyakartas across the nation served the people through nationwide ‘Seva Hi Sangathan’ campaign and provided relief to the people distributing food packets, ration, face masks, sanitizers and other essentials while serving the affected people and the senior citizens in time of need. As other political parties were locked inside their homes while only indulging in politicking and mudslinging, the BJP Karyakartas were on the streets risking their lives and serving the people and raising the morale of Corona Warriors across the nation. As the nation is fighting the pandemic unitedly, BJP Karyakartas have written a new saga of commitment and service to the nation.
