PM Modi To Address The Nation At 5 pm


Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 5 PM today.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) tweeted the announcement.

While it was not immediately clear as to what the prime minister’s address to the nation would be about, it comes on a day India reported just over 1 lakh new daily COVID-19 cases – the lowest in around two months.

Sources said that the prime minister is likely to speak on his government’s vaccination policy, which has been criticized by various states as well as experts. The Supreme Court had also recently criticised the Centre over its vaccination policy.

The union government may take responsibility for vaccine procurement, sources added.

Sources said that the address may also touch upon the easing of restrictions and preparations for a possible third wave of cases.
