@BJP4India
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that India is one of the countries in the world that understood the seriousness of COVID-19 and took timely steps to initiate a war against it. He was addressing BJP party workers through video conference on the occasion of 40th Foundation Day of Bhartiya Janta Party.
 
Mr Modi said, India's attempts to battle the pandemic has set a new example to the world. He said, India took one step after another and worked to ensure that those measures should reach at the ground level. He said, it was ensured that all State Governments worked together and made all important decisions in sync with experts. He said, the country is united in one mission today which is to win the war against COVID-19. He said, it is a long battle but India will not get tired or face defeat.
 
The Prime Minister praised Indians for showing maturity in dealing with the current situation and called it unprecedented. He said, no one could have imagined that 130 crore people in a vast country like India would show such discipline during lock down. Referring to countrywide exercise to switch off the lights and illuminate diyas for nine minutes, he said, we experienced yesterday at 9 p.m., the strength of togetherness of 130 crore people of our country. He said, people from every section of society and age groups demonstrated this unity and strengthened the resolve in fight against Corona virus.
 
Mr Modi said, from the very beginning, BJP has been taught the Mantra of Nation First. He made five appeals to the party workers. He asked them to keep campaigning to provide rations to the poor and make face covers for five to six persons other than themselves. He also urged party workers to spread the word among people about Arogya Setu App to help fight against COVID-19. He asked them to donate to PM CARES Fund and motivate 40 others to donate as well. He also urged to show gratitude towards the front line warriors who are serving the nation in the difficult times. He said, the Mantra today for the whole world is social distancing and discipline.
 
Remembering leaders, Dr. Syama Prasad Mookherjee, Deen Dayal Upadhyay, Kushabhau Thakre, he said, they set the right examples to imbibe and there is a lot to learn from senior party workers who have given their life to the service of nation.
