Before you address us, @narendramodi, here are a few things for your consideration. Of course, I do see that people are already praising you sky-high for your actions on #Corona:
1) The govt saw Corona coming after infection spread to Korea. Audit ur govt's actions from then on
2) Production of critical doctor - saving equipment and testing kits should have been stepped up. Why didn't your government do it? When will you do it?
3) If your government was aware from mid- January (as a BJP handle claimed), why the dearth of testing kits?
4) Parliament, some Assemblies are still in session. This is ridiculous.
5) NICD/Infectious Diseases experts are not in charge of press briefs. ICMR DG is. Why?
6) Testing should have been opened to all accreditated labs; govt should foot the bill. Even now, not yet

Govt Sources on PAK health minister raising Kashmir during #COVID19 video conference. -
The remarks made by the Pak representative at the #SAARC  leaders video conference were churlish. 
Totaly unwarrented and out of context. 
They are politicizing a hanitarian issue.1/ 3
Sources: All the leaders attended this meeting. Nepal PM @kpsharmaoli got discharged from Kindney transplant but ensured his attendence. Still Pak PM Imran Khan chose not to attend the meet and sent his health minister. 2/3
Sources: Pak Health Minister was also visibly uncomfortable.Everyone noticed that he read from a chit someone passed to him at the last moment.

The example of South Asian Satellite shows how India has been taking up the initiatives that bear prosperity to the neighbourhood. South Asian satellite was launched in 2017 with an intention to arrive at scientific solutions to address poverty in the #SAARC region. Image
South Asian University- also an example of India building academic excellence that will have generational impact. The 1174 students graduated contribute immensely to the development of resp member states. We’re committed to giving 100% capital cost towards construction of SAU.
Regionalism has taken root in every corner of the world. If we have lagged behind, it is because South Asia does not have normal trade and connectivity that other regions do.
