Rajkot Mayor Shri. Janak Bhai Kotak said that Danish Water Forum is undertaking a pilot project in Rajkot city to prevent water losses and strengthen the local water distribution systems.  The ultimate aim would include water audit, estimation of leakage amount and reduction of Non Revenue Water (NRW) based on the most state of art technology and extensive international experience.

The Danish Water Forum Spokesman Shri Anshul Jain said that they have selected Gujarat as their destination due to pragmatic leadership provided by Hon’ble Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi in creating unparalleled State Wide Water Grid that is the biggest of its kind in the World.

The Danish Water Forum is a research based network aiming at highlighting and promoting water expertise and knowledge and facilitating concerted actions.  The objective of Danish Water Forum is to strengthen the water sector, nationally and internationally within water resources, clean water and waste water by promotion of easy access to knowledge and competence on water, thereby strengthening the quality and competitiveness of the water sector. Another important objective is to strengthening cooperation in the water sector between water utilities and research institutions and promoting the important role of water and its links to other sectors such as energy and health for social development for a cleaner environment.

This event marked a perfect occasion on the World Water Day in the International Year of Water Cooperation declared by United Nations.

PM lauds role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive on completion of 1 year of vaccine drive. The Prime Minister has lauded the role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive. He also said that India's vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19.

In response to a tweet by MyGovIndia, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets said;

"Today we mark #1YearOfVaccineDrive.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
