Kurukshetra: The national executive member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Indresh Kumar, said when the entire world was confused with how to deal with the Covid pandemic, the leadership of India built courage, patience and trust in the world by extending a hand of friendship and help.

While speaking at a webinar organised by Kurukshetra University on the topic "India's growing prospects on the post-Covid world table", he said India showed compassion for the entire human race and did not create panic among nations to sell essential medical and food supplies. India, by showing its true culture and tradition, sent medicines to countries in dire need and also food supplies, he added. "Today we are moving towards building a new India with a new education policy, which is capable of ending unemployment and fulfilling the dream of a self-reliant India, he said.
