‘Dawai bhi, kadai bhi’: PM Modi on Covid vaccine; warns against rumours
As India inches closer towards a Covid vaccine, PM Modi has asked people to remain vigilant and adhere to Covid precautions even after vaccination. 'Earlier, I said, 'dawai nahi toh dheelai nahi' (no carelessness until the medicine arrives). Now, I am saying 'dawai bhi aur kadaai bhi' (yes to medicine and yes to caution). Our mantra for the year 2021 is 'Dawai bhi aur kadaai bhi', PM Modi said while speaking after laying the foundation stone for AIIMS Rajkot. PM Modi also thanked healthcare and frontline Covid workers for their selfless service to the nation amid the crisis. 'I appeal to the people of the country that fight against COVID-19 is the one against an unknown enemy. Be careful about such rumours and as responsible citizens refrain from forwarding messages on social media without checking,' PM Modi added. Speaking on India's vaccine development, PM said that all efforts are being made to ensure that the vaccine reaches all sections and called for support of the people to make the vaccination drive a success.
