New Delhi:

In his last edition of 'Mann Ki Baat' radio programme of the year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi applauded the resilience of the people amid the coronavirus pandemic and the country's shift towards indigenous products.

"The coronavirus brought many obstacles in the world regarding the supply chain, but we took new lessons from every crisis," PM Modi said, adding that the spirit of "Aatmanirbhar Bharat" was seen in the year gone by.

PM Modi said in most letters he received, people mentioned India's togetherness in times of lockdown. He had earlier sought people's view on 2020, and also what they look forward to in the coming year, for his address.
