After months of suspense on vaccination status of Rahul Gandhi, the former Congress president finally got jabbed on Friday.
While the Congress party had taken a lead role in questioning the Centre over the nationwide vaccination strategy, many Bharatiya Janata Party leaders such as Sambit Patra routinely questioned that why Rahul has not taken the jab.
Just five days ago, Union MoS MEA and Culture Meenakshi Lekhi blamed ex-Congress president Rahul for the slacking COVID-19 vaccination drive in the country.
She said, "If he would have given timely information on whether he and his family members have taken the vaccine, so many people would not have died. These people who created doubts in the minds of people are responsible. Besides this, their states slacked in giving vaccines supplied to them (by the Centre) to the people".
Meanwhile, apart from Covishield and Covaxin, the Drugs Controller General of India approved Sputnik V and Moderna on April 12 and June 29 respectively.
