The four day long special vaccination drive, Teeka Utsav, has started from today all over the country. The vaccine drive which began on the Birth anniversary of social reformer Jyotiba Phule will culminate on 14th April on the occasion of birth anniversary of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to everyone to follow four fold principle as the nation kick-starts four day special vaccination drive, Teeka Utsav today. Emphasising on the need to follow both personal and social hygiene, Mr. Modi urged citizens to imbibe these four principles which include ‘Each One, Vaccinate One’ , ‘Each One , Treat One’ , ‘Each One, Save One’ , and people led creation of Micro Containment Zones.
The Prime Minister said the ‘Teeka Utsav’ is the beginning of the second big war against Corona Pandemic. He also urged citizens to ensure zero wastage of COVID vaccines and asked those eligible to be vaccinated to get their jabs. Mr. Modi said during this time we have to move towards optimum utilization of the country’s vaccination capacity. He added that this will also in a way increase our vaccination capacity. The Prime Minister asserted that the Nation’s success in the fight against the pandemic will be determined by the fact that people don’t step outside their houses without pressing needs.
Entrusting women with the job of getting every eligible beneficiary in the house to get vaccinated, Mr. Modi stressed that our success will be determined by how we wear masks and follow other covid appropriate behaviours. He expressed confidence that with public participation in these four days, at the individual level, at the level of society and at the level of administration, the country will be able to achieve a major breakthrough in its Corona oriented fight.
