Dubbed as 'third-world', India now helping world with COVID-19 vaccines: PM Modi

“India emerged as pharmacy of the world during a pandemic, delivered medicines to 150 countries,” he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday replied to the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address during the ongoing Budget Session of Parliament. He said it would have been nice had everyone listened to President Kovind’s address.

Expressing his gratitude towards all MPs present in Rajya Sabha, PM Modi recited a poem on Atmanirbhar Bharat. He said, “India is truly a land of opportunities. Several opportunities are awaiting us, so a nation which is young, full of enthusiasm and a nation that is making efforts to realise the dreams, with a resolve, will never let these opportunities simply pass by.”

"India has seen days when there was a large threat of polio, smallpox. Nobody knew whether India will get a vaccine or how many people will get it. From those days, we're now here, when our nation is making vaccines for the world. This increases our self-confidence," PM Modi said, adding that the country was once called a "third-world" nation.

He added, “World had apprehensions about how India would handle pandemic; lakhs would die they had apprehended. However, today, the world appreciates our efforts in saving humanity. We should be proud of it.”
