Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 10 AM today, informed his office via tweet. This comes a day after the nation reached the landmark of having administered over 100 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses to become only the second country after China to reach the spot.
The one-line tweet by the PMO office read, “PM Narendra Modi will address the nation at 10 AM today.”
As soon as the country reached the landmark 100 crore vaccinations mark before 10 AM on Thursday, PM Narendra Modi had congratulated the health care workers for achieving the milestone. The milestone is a victory of Indian science, enterprise and collective spirit of 130 crore Indians, he said.
Also, while virtually inaugurating a new building at AIIMS Campus in New Delhi, PM Narendra Modi said, “This day of October 21, 2021, has been recorded in history. India has crossed the 100 crore vaccine doses mark sometime back. To combat the biggest pandemic in 100 years, the country now has a strong protective shield of 100 crore vaccine doses. This achievement belongs to India, every citizen of India.”
