New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the 65th edition of his monthly radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat'. The address by PM Modi came on the final day of the fourth phase of nationwide lockdown. It is focused on relaxations being given from June 1 after two months of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19. On Saturday, the Home Ministry issued fresh guidelines for phased reopening of all activities outside containment zones for the next one month beginning June 1.

Incidentally, the 'Mann Ki Baat' address came a day after the one-year anniversary of the second term of the Modi government.

Here are the key highlights of PM Modi's address to nation:

COVID-19 did not spread in India as fast as it did in other countries.

When last time I spoke with you in Mann Ki Baat, passenger trains, buses, air services were closed but this time curbs have been lifted.

Shramik Special trains, other special trains and flights have resumed with adequate precautionary measures.

It is important to be even more vigilant as major chunk of economy has opened up.

India's fight against COVID-19 is people-driven and country's 'seva shakti' is visible in this battle.

Fight against COVID-19 is also being powered by innovative spirit of our citizens.

Road ahead is a long one; we are fighting a pandemic about which little was previously known.

There should be no laxity in maintaining six feet distance (Do Gaj Doori), wearing masks & staying indoors as much as possible.

A multitude of countrymen from villages & cities, from small scale traders to startups, our labs are devising even new ways of fighting against Corona; with novel innovations.

There is no class of people who did not suffer due to COVID-19 outbreak, but poor, labourers hit hardest.

Cyclone Amphan: India stands with Odisha and West Bengal, people of these states have shown remarkable courage.

Help will be extended to all those affected by locust attack.

COVID-19 is very much there and we cannot be complacent.
