The prime minister’s message comes a day after India hit the 100 crore vaccine landmark. In an opinion piece written by the PM for various publications today, he described India’s vaccination drive as a “journey from anxiety to assurance that has made the country emerge stronger,” and credited its success to “people’s trust in the vaccines despite various efforts to create mistrust and panic.”

“India scripts history. We are witnessing the triumph of Indian science, enterprise and collective spirit of 130 crore Indians,” the Prime Minister tweeted on Thursday, soon after the country’s vaccination drive crossed the 100-crore mark.

In April, PM Modi changed his profile picture minutes after addressing the nation and announcing that the first Covid-19 lockdown had been extended till May 3. In the image, PM Modi’s mouth and nose were covered with a traditional ‘gamcha’.

The countrywide vaccination drive was rolled out on January 16 with health care workers (HCWs) getting inoculated in the first phase. India took 85 days to touch the 10-crore vaccination mark, 45 more days to cross the 20-crore mark and 29 more days to reach the 30-crore mark, according to the Union Health Ministry data.
