"11th annual statewide Shala Pravesh Mahotsav for municipal schools begins on June 20"
"Gujarat to introduce biometric attendance system for teachers and students in government rural primary schools: Narendra Modi"

Ahmedabad`, Saturday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today visited Chiroda, Samdhiyala and Rajesar villages in the Mendarda taluka of Junagadh district to mark the conclusion of phase-1 of the three-day statewide 11th annual Shala Pravesh Mahotsav to encourage enrollment drive in primary schools and Anganwadi playgroups in rural areas.

Speaking at these schools, nestled in the forested foothills of the Girnar, he said that biometric attendance system for teachers and students is being introduced in government primary schools in rural areas. Students’ performance will be tracked with the help of technology. He said that Gujarat Government has already introduced a scheme for schools’ grading, setting the ball rolling for a competition among schools to be A-Grade.

Mr.Modi said the campaign to ensure cent percent enrollment in primary schools during Shala Pravesh and Kanya Kelavni Utsav 11 years ago has started paying dividends, too.

He regretted that crores of rupees were spent on school education by the previous governments for the last 60 years and yet a large section of the population remained illiterate. However, he said, the past could be corrected with the cooperation of parents and teachers. The present generation should ensure not a single child remain uneducated in rural areas. Ignorance, superstition and poverty are the biggest banes of the society.

Mr. Modi distributed books, educational kits, toys and sweetmeats to tiny tots donated by villagers. He felicitated alumni of these schools who over a period of times became prominent citizens.

He laid foundation stones and inaugurated projects worth Rs.101-crore for Menderda taluka of the Junagadh district.

Prominent among those present at the functions included MP Vitthal Radadiya, MLAs Mahendra Mashru, Arvind Ladani and Jethabhai Solanki, District Panchayat President Diviben Baraiya, Vice-President Hiren Solanki, ex-Union Minister Bhavnaben Chikhaliya, ex-State Ministers Ratibhai Sureja and Kanubhai Kalala, ex-Parliamentary Secretary L.T. Rajani, Women’s Suraksha Parishad Vice-Chairperson Jyotiben Vachhani and others.

Mr. Modi is scheduled to launch the phase-2 of the three-day Mahotsav for municipal primary schools in urban areas on June 20, 2013.

Excellencies,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented disruption. And, it is not yet over. Much of the world is still to be vaccinated. That is why this initiative by President Biden is timely and welcome.

Excellencies,

India has always seen humanity as one family. India's pharmaceutical industry has produced cost-effective diagnostic kits, drugs, medical devices, and PPE kits. These are providing affordable options to many developing countries. And, we have shared medicines and medical supplies with over 150 countries. Two indigenously developed vaccines have received "Emergency Use Authorization" in India, including the world's first DNA-based vaccine.

Several Indian companies are also involved in licensed production of various vaccines.

Earlier this year, we shared our vaccine production with 95 other countries, and with UN peace-keepers. And, like a family, the world also stood with India when we were going through a second wave.

For the solidarity and support extended to India, I thank you all.



Excellencies,

India is now running the world's largest vaccination campaign. Recently, we vaccinated about 25 million people on a single day. Our grassroots level healthcare system has delivered over 800 million vaccine dose so far.

Over 200 million Indians are now fully vaccinated. This has been enabled through the use of our innovative digital platform called CO-WIN.

In the spirit of sharing, India has made CO-WIN and many other digital solutions available freely as open-source software.

Excellencies,

As newer Indian vaccines get developed, we are also ramping up production capacity of existing vaccines.

As our production increases, we will be able to resume vaccine supply to others too. For this, the supply chains of raw materials must be kept open.

With our Quad partners, we are leveraging India's manufacturing strengths to produce vaccines for the Indo-Pacific region.

India and the South Africa have proposed a TRIPS waiver at the WTO for COVID vaccines, diagnostics and medicines.

This will enable rapid scaling up of the fight against the pandemic. We also need to focus on addressing the pandemic economic effects.

To that end, international travel should be made easier, through mutual recognition of vaccine certificates.

Excellencies,

I once again endorse the objectives of this Summit and President Biden's vision.

India stand ready to work with the world to end the pandemic.

Thank you.
Thank you very much
