'Invisible Enemy vs Invincible Warriors': PM Modi Hails Healthcare Workers' Role in Covid-19 Battle
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hailed the efforts of doctors and frontline workers in India's Covid-19 battle and said that any violence against them was not acceptable.
“Doctors and medical workers are soldiers without uniforms. It is the battle of invisible (virus) against invincible (doctors and health workers)," Modi said while addressing an event at the Rajiv Gandhi Health University in Bengaluru via video conference.
“Due to mob mentality, those workers (safai workers, doctors and nurses) on the frontline are subject to violence. I want to state it clearly that violence, rude behavior is not acceptable," he said.
