Speaking at the event, Singh appreciated the administrative secretaries, head of departments and government employees for dedicatedly working hard to achieve progress in the past four years.

PM Modi addresses vaccine hesitancy, gets Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin jab
New Delhi [India], March 01 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took the first dose of Covaxin, India’s homegrown coronavirus vaccine developed by biotechnology firm Bharat Biotech and Indian Council of Medical Research, addressing the hesitancy over the COVID-19 vaccine.

In the picture that PM Modi tweeted, he is seen wearing a gamcha of Assam, which is symbolic of blessings of women from the eastern state. He has been seen wearing it on many occasions.
PM Modi was administered Bharat BioTech’s Covaxin by Sister P Niveda from Puducherry. The second nurse was from Kerala.
The Covid-19 vaccines- Covaxin and Covishield, will be made available to the general public from today.
The PM went to AIIMS without any route on the roads, thus choosing early morning to avoid inconvenience to public.
