At the seventh meeting of the Governing Council (GC) of NITI Aayog, PM Modi said the cooperative federalism of India helped the country emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the collective efforts of all the states in the spirit of cooperative federalism as the force that helped India emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic. Addressing the seventh meeting of the Governing Council (GC) of NITI Aayog, PM Modi said, “Every state played a crucial role according to its strength and contributed to India’s fight against Covid. This led to India emerging as an example for the developing nations to look up to as a global leader.”

This was the first physical meeting of the Governing Council since the onset of the pandemic, with the 2021 meeting held via video conferencing. The meeting was attended by 23 chief ministers, three Lieutenant Governors and two Administrators and Union Ministers. The meeting was moderated by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
