    PM Modi speaks on various reforms undertaken in Budget 2021-22

    • The Govt is going ahead with the mantra of 'Monetise & Modernise'. When Govt monetises, that space is filled by private sector of the country. Private sector brings investment and best global practices with them.
    • This modernises other things and brings modernisation to the entire sector, rapid expansion of the sector and creation of new employment opportunities. It is important to monitor this to ensure that there is transparency in this process and rules are followed. 
    • There was a different time when public sector enterprises were established & the needs were also different. There is always scope to reform the policy which was good 50-60 years ago. Now when we are bringing reform, our aim is to optimally utilise public money.
    • Many public sector enterprises are loss-making & several of them need the support of public money. It burdens the economy. Public sector enterprises should not be run because they were started many years ago & were someone's pet project.
    • I can understand the need of any public sector enterprise if it is fulfilling the needs of any sector & of any strategic importance. It is the responsibility of the govt to supply support country's enterprise & business but there is no need for govt to be in business.

    AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria on COVID vaccination

    Vaccines will definitely prevent serious disease & therefore decease mortality as far as new (coronavirus) strain is concern... Currently, we have vaccines which efficacy is 70%, 80%, 90% so even if there is a slight fall in efficacy it will still be effective

     As of now, we don't need to worry but we need to monitor the situation closely & look aggressively for all variants & make sure that none of them becomes totally new & our vaccines efficacy falls. 

    Simultaneously, we have to keep changing the vaccines also to keep into account the new variants that are emerging.
