New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday (April 19) that the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic affects everyone equally irrespective of faith, colour or caste.
“COVID-19 does not see race, religion, colour, caste, creed, language or border before striking. Our response and conduct thereafter should attach primacy to unity and brotherhood. We are in this together,” the official Twitter handle of PMO said in a post today.
“Unlike previous moments in history, when countries or societies faced off against each other, today we are together facing a common challenge. The future will be about togetherness and resilience,” PM Modi said.
“The next big ideas from India should find global relevance and application. They should have the ability to drive a positive change not merely for India but for the entire humankind,” he said.
“Logistics was previously only seen through the prism of physical infrastructure – roads, warehouses, ports. But logistical experts these days can control global supply chains through the comfort of their own homes,” the Prime Minister said.
“India, with the right blend of the physical and the virtual can emerge as the global nerve centre of complex modern multinational supply chains in the post COVID-19 world. Let us rise to that occasion and seize this opportunity. I urge you all to think about this and contribute to the discourse,” he said.
