New Delhi: The Coronavirus pandemic has forced the people to appreciate and re-evaluate the humble contribution of the under-privileged.
Giving examples of household helps and common workers who fulfilled various needs or personnel working in shops nearby or delivering essential services, labourers working in marketplaces, the auto rickshaw drivers in the neighbourhood, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said, “Today people realise how difficult their lives can be without them.”
Addressing his monthly programme “Mann Ki Baat” broadcast all over the country, he said the people were not only remembering these workers and helping them with their needs, but are also writing about
them with great respect in social media.
The Prime Minister observed that “doctors, cleaning staff and other such services personnel, and even the police organisations are being seen in a new light by the common people.”
He said today, the police personnel were ensuring that food and medicines reached the poor and needy and it was a time when common folk were connecting with the police at an emotional level.
