Necessary preparations are going on regarding COVID-19 vaccines in India. Efforts are being made in various stages to make the vaccine reach every corner of the country.
This last day of the year is to remember India’s millions of doctors, health warriors, sanitation workers, and front line corona warriors. I salute the companions who have given their lives on duty.
This year has shown that how effectively we can cope with the most difficult crisis when we are all united.
The year 2020 was full of transition, concerns & question marks. But 2021 is bringing hope for a cure. Every necessary preparation is going on in India regarding the vaccine.
If 2020 was an year of health challenges, 2021 will be an year of health solutions.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Former Union Cabinet Minister of Food Processing :
People’s will is supreme in democracy PM Narendra Modi ji. Please don’t prolong suffering of 1000s sitting in cold at your doorstep to repeal 3 Agri laws.
This could have been averted if you had listened to my requests of June 3, 5 & Sept 14 warning you about repercussions of passing hated laws.
The largest peaceful agitation of farmers has won India’s heart and become example for the world.
Our farmers are on the cusp of victory. I appeal to them-hold direct talks with PM to get these agri laws repealed. They shouldn’t fall into trap of extended meetings which yield nothing.
