Gandhinagar, Saturday: In a fervent appeal on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today asked the citizens to ‘Buy Khadi’ in bulk and support the cause of poor weavers.

Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, Mr. Modi said, khadi is one of the best means for economic empowerment of the poor weavers. He wished every citizen join the campaign to buy khadi for self and family during the Gandhi Jayanti Week.

The Chief Minister said that buying at least one set of khadi dress could be the biggest tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, indirectly helping out the Mahatma’s favourite ‘Daridra Narayan’, helping the Shram Yogi lit a small lamp at his home during the festival of light in Diwali. There are lakhs of such Shram Yogis.

As in the previous years, Gujarat Government has announced special rebate on the sale of khadi clothes during the Week. It has resulted in huge positive response in the society over the last one decade. Mr. Modi cites his own example of making it a precedent for bulk purchase of khadi clothes during the Week for the past several years.

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."
