New Delhi, May 26 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the economic impact left by Covid-19 is huge and our planet will not be the same after the pandemic.

Mr. Modi, who was delivering the keynote address on the occasion of “Vesak Global Celebrations” on Buddha Purnima, pointed out that the pandemic had impacted every nation. There had been many developments that strengthened the country’s strategy to fight it. 

“Most importantly, we have the vaccine which is absolutely important to save lives and defeat the pandemic,” he stated.

The emergence of jabs within a year of COVID-19 outbreak showed the power of human determination and tenacity, he asserted.  “India is proud of its scientists for developing vaccines,” he observed, saluting healthcare and front line workers for risking their lives to save others.

With the Prime Ministers of Nepal and Sri Lanka and the secretary general of the International Buddhist Confederation in attendance at the virtual event, Mr. Modi gave a call for all those who believed in humanity to come together and defeat terrorism and radicalisation. 

“The life of Gautama Buddha was about peace, harmony and co-existence, he noted. There are still forces whose existence depend on spreading hate, terror and mindless violence. Such forces do not believe in liberal democratic principles,“ he highlighted.
