Share

BJP slammed the opposition social gathering, with its President JP Nadda urging Congress to cease enjoying the lives of folks and inflicting panic by “wild theories”. Several Congress members raised apprehensions concerning the approval of Indian made anti Covid 19 vaccine COVAXIN.

 

“Time and again we have seen whenever India achieves something commendable – that will further public good – Congress comes up with wild theories to oppose and ridicule the accomplishments. The more they oppose, the more they are exposed. Latest example is the Covid vaccine,” Nadda stated. “To further their own failed politics and nefarious agendas, Congress and other Opposition leaders are trying to cause panic in the minds of the people. I urge them to do politics on other issues,” he stated.

 

Union minister Harsh Vardhan was equally sad over the opposition leaders’ remarks as he tweeted, “Disgraceful for anyone to politicise such a critical issue. Wake up and realise you are only discrediting yourselves!”

 

He tagged opposition leaders, together with Congress’s Shashi Tharoor, Jairam Ramesh and SP’s Akhilesh Yadav, in his tweet. Yadav had on Saturday requested folks to not get vaccinated.

 

Tharoor, Ramesh in addition to senior Congress member Anand Sharma had raised considerations over India’s medication regulator granting permission for the restricted use of Bharat Biotech’s Covid-19 vaccine. “The health ministry needs to give cogent reasons for dispensing with the mandatory protocols and requirements in this case, since it involves the health and safety of those frontline workers who will be vaccinated under the restricted category,” Sharma stated.

 

Sharma’s considerations had been echoed by Jairam Ramesh and Tharoor. Ramesh stated Bharat Biotech is a “first-rate enterprise” however, it was “puzzling” why the federal government “modified” internationally accepted protocols referring to part 3 trials for Covaxin.

 

BJP hit again with petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan reacting, “Belittling the nation’s accomplishments is an all time hobby of the Congress and its band of ‘rent-a-cause’ leaders.”
