Bengaluru: PM Modi has said the world is facing its biggest crisis since the two world wars amid the Covid pandemic. He was addressing a Bengaluru varsity's silver jubilee celebration on Monday. “Like the world changed pre and post world war, the same way pre and post Covid world will be different,” Modi said through a video link while inaugurating the 25 years celebration of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS).
