PM Modi tears up while 'remembering past journey'January 16, 2021 10:55
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while launching the Covid-19 vaccination drive in India, teared up while talking about the struggle-filled journey of lakhs of people who worked to eradicate the deadly disease from the country. "Some of them could not even return home," he says.
Speaking to the nation, he says, "Today when we take a look at the last year, we realise that we have learnt a lot as a person, a family and as a nation."
"This disease kept people away from their families. The mothers cried for their children & had to stay away. People could not meet their elderly admitted at hospitals. We could not bid adieu to those with proper rituals who died due to corona."
