Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the grant of approval by DCGI to vaccines of Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech accelerates the road to a healthier and COVID-free nation.
Congratulating the nation and the hardworking scientists and innovators of the country, Mr Modi in a tweet said that it is a decisive turning point to strengthen a spirited fight.
He said, it would make every Indian proud that the two vaccines that have been given emergency use approval are made in India. The Prime Minister said that this shows the eagerness of our scientific community to fulfil the dream of an Aatmanirbhar Bharat, at the root of which lies care and compassion.
Mr Modi said that we reiterate our gratitude to doctors, medical staff, scientists, police personnel, sanitation workers and all Corona warriors for the outstanding work done, that too under adverse circumstances. He said, we will remain eternally grateful to them for saving many lives.
