Asserting India’s vaccination programme was scientific based, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hailed the country’s feat of achieving 100 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses.

In his address to the nation, Modi urged people to continue following Covid-19 protocol, during the festival season and insisted that they should not lower their guard against the deadly virus.

"It is a matter of pride for us that India's vaccination programme has been science-born, science-driven and science-based," Modi said.

From the development of vaccines to inoculation, science and science-based approach has been involved in all processes, he asserted.

Taking everyone along, the country started the campaign of 'Sabko Vaccine, Muft Vaccine', he noted.

The country, he said, had only one mantra -- that if the disease does not discriminate, then there cannot be any discrimination in the vaccination.

"That's why it was ensured that VIP culture was not allowed," he said. (With PTI inputs)
