Pandemic is not over yet, warns PM Modi as new variant raises concerns

PM Modi's warning comes as the world grapples with news of a new 'Omicron' variant of coronavirus, first reported in South Africa. 

PM Modi warned citizens that the pandemic is not yet over as he addressed the nation in the 83rd episode of 'Mann ki Baat', his radio programme.

'It is our responsibility to take all precautions,' he said urging people to stay vigilant. PM Modi's warning comes as the world grapples with news of a new 'Omicron' variant of coronavirus, first reported in South Africa.

The Prime Minister also spoke about a number of different things in his half-hour long programme beginning with a tribute to the armed forces, taking note that the 50th anniversary celebrations of India’s victory over Pakistan in the 1971 war will take place next month.

PM Modi also paid homage to BR Ambedkar, whose death anniversary falls on December 6. “Baba Saheb had devoted his entire life for the fulfillment of his duties for the country and society. We should never forget that the basic spirit of our constitution expects from all of us to discharge our duties,” he said.

The Prime Minister also went on to laud the impact that various government schemes have had over the years. In conversation with a beneficiary of the Ayushman Bharat health scheme that helps the poor avail healthcare facilities, he said, 'I do not seek power, I want to serve the people.'

Continuing with the theme of conservation, which he has spoken about in previous episodes of his radio programme, PM Modi urged people to protect nature. “We are threatened by nature only when we disturb its balance or destroy its purity,” he said. PM Modi encouraged citizens to adapt lifestyles that promote living in harmony with nature and protecting natural resources.

He hailed the progress India has made in the start-up space. The Prime Minister said that countries with young populations have three characteristics - ideas and innovation, ability to take risks and can-do spirit. Youngsters are not only job-seekers but also job-creators, he added.
