New Delhi, January 29
President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday addressed the joint sitting of Parliament and said the Budget session was being held at a challenging time of COVID-19.
“Whenever India is united, it has achieved impossible goals,” the President said.
He added that no matter how big the challenge was, we would not stop, India would not stop.
“In the fight against pandemic, we have lost many countrymen, including ex-president Pranab Mukherjee and six MPs,” President Kovind said at the joint meeting.
“I am satisfied that due to the timely decisions of the government, lives of millions of people could be saved, and the number of daily cases and deaths are decreasing day-by-day,” the President said in his address.
The Centre-state coordination had strengthened democracy, he added. PTI
