Farmers, vaccines, national security & democracy: President Ram Nath Kovind’s address on eve of Republic Day | India News

NEW DELHI: President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday addressed the nation on the eve of 72nd Republic Day.
In his address, the President paid his tribute to the soldiers martyred in Galwan Valley last year in the clash with China. The President also asserted that his government is committed to the welfare of the farmers.
President Kovind hailed the efforts of health workers in tackling the Covid-19 crisis and urged the citizens to get vaccinated.
Here is a look at some of the quotes from his address.
‘Our warriors are vigilant every moment’

  • The past year was a time of adversity, and it came from many fronts. We faced an expansionist move on our borders, but our valiant soldiers foiled it. To achieve this objective, 20 of them had to lay down their lives. The nation shall remain grateful to those brave soldiers.
  • Though we reiterate our commitment to peace, our defence forces – Army, Air Force and Navy – are adequately mobilised in a well-coordinated move to thwart any attempt to undermine our security. Our national interest will be protected at all costs.
  • From freezing cold at Siachen and Galwan valley in Ladakh with temperatures as low as -50 to -60°C to scorching heat in Jaisalmer with temperatures as high as 50°C – on land, in the skies and at the vast coastal areas – our warriors are vigilant every moment.

‘I urge countrymen to get vaccinated’

  • The administration and health services are working with full readiness to make this exercise (vaccination) a success. I urge upon countrymen to utilise this lifeline and get vaccinated as per guidelines. Your health opens the way for your advancement.
  • Our scientists, along with doctors, administrators and people from other walks of life, have made a major contribution in containing the virus and keeping the fatality rate lower in our country, compared to that in developed countries.
  • I am sure that with a view to reducing the risk of such pandemics, the issue of climate change will be accorded top priority at the global level.

‘Government remains singularly devoted to farmers’ welfare’

  • Economic reforms continue apace and supplemented by long-pending reforms in areas of labour and agriculture through legislation. Path to reform at initial stages may cause misapprehensions. However, it’s beyond doubt that government remains singularly devoted to farmers’ welfare.
  • Every Indian salute our farmers, who have made our vast and populous country self-reliant in food-grains and dairy products. Despite adversities of nature, numerous other challenges and Covid-19 pandemic, our farmers sustained agricultural production.

‘Our democracy has accomplished remarkable feats’

  • By conducting not only free and fair but also safe elections in Bihar which has high population density and Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh with difficulties of access & other challenges, our democracy and Election Commission have accomplished remarkable feats.

‘The values outlined in Preamble are sacred to all of us’

  • This is the day to also pause and ponder over the core values that the Constitution propounds. These values – Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity – outlined in the Preamble of our Constitution are sacred to all of us.
  • India with its vibrant democracy has rightfully earned respect as a responsible and trustworthy nation.
