On the day of National Doctor’s Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted doctors calling them “exceptional caregivers.” Praising the doctors, PM Modi said the doctors have taken part in “spirited” fight against the pandemic and have saved many lives putting themselves in danger.
“India salutes our doctors, exceptional caregivers who are at the forefront of a spirited fight against COVID-19,” PM Modi wrote on Twitter, to mark National Doctor’s’ Day. In the video posted, the PM said, “while mothers give birth, doctors ensure our rebirth.” He also said, “doctors in protective gear (PPE) are like the representatives of God” as they treat patients with COVID-19 infection.
BJP chief JP Nadda tweeted saying, “On National Doctor’s Day, I convey my greetings and gratitude to the doctors and medical fraternity who are working hard selflessly, risking their lives to ensure good health and safety for us. We applaud our ‘corona warriors’ for their sincere efforts to lessen the mortality of COVID19,”
-Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always appreciated the contribution of doctors every time he addressed the nation and also in his ‘Mann Ki Baat’. Earlier in June, during his speech the PM said India’s fight against the novel coronavirus has been led by “medical community and corona warriors”.
The National Doctor’s Day is celebrated in the memory of Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy, a former Chief Minister of West Bengal and a well-known physician. The coronavirus outbreak has made the job of medical professionals harder.
Their hard work and dedication since the start of the pandemic have been praise-worthy. In a message to people who were targeting healthcare workers, the PM had said, “abuse and rude behaviour against the frontline workers won’t be tolerated.”
