Corona Vaccine: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi once again targeted the government for the lack of vaccine. Taking a jibe at the recent Union Cabinet expansion, he said that the number of ministers has increased, the number of vaccines has not increased.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “The number of ministers has increased, not the vaccine.” With this tweet, he questioned where are the vaccines? He wrote the hashtag Where Are Vaccines i.e. where are the vaccines.
This is not the first time that Rahul Gandhi has targeted the government. Even before this, on many occasions, he has taken the government against him. Earlier, he had taken a dig at the removal of Dr Harsh Vardhan from the post of Union Health Minister and entrusting this responsibility to Mansukh Mandaviya, saying that it means that there will be no shortage of vaccine in the country. He had tweeted with the hashtag ‘change’, “This means there will be no more shortage of vaccines.”
On this, BJP Gaurav Bhatia hit back at Rahul Gandhi, saying that former Congress President Rahul Gandhi is ‘irresponsible’ and criticizes without any reason. On the other hand, former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said that the first task of the new Health Minister should be to ensure proper and uninterrupted supply of vaccines in the country. He tweeted, “The new health minister’s first task should be to ensure that there is a fair and uninterrupted supply of vaccines.”
