New Delhi,(UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the Government is committed to ensuring adequate availability of COVID-19 vaccines.
Interacting with Governors of States regarding the Covid-19 situation and ongoing vaccination drive in the country, through video conferencing, the Prime Minister underlined that the government is committed to ensuring adequate availability of vaccines.
He highlighted that India has become the fastest nation to reach the landmark of 10 crore vaccinations.
Noting the positive impact of 'Tika Utsav' in the last four days, Mr Modi said that in this period, the vaccination drive was expanded and new vaccination centres also came up. 
The Prime Minister said that in the battle against Covid, along with the vaccines, 'our values and sense of duty are our biggest strengths'. 
Praising the citizens who participated in this battle last year considering it their duty, he said that the same feeling of 'Janbhagidari' needs to be encouraged now as well. 
The Prime Minister said that the role of the Governors, through appropriate utilization of their social capacity thus becomes all the more critical to achieving this. 
Governors are an important link to ensure better coordination between State Governments and society, he said, adding that the combined power of all community organizations, political parties, NGOs, and social institutions needs to be harnessed.
