Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma on Sunday (November 29) praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to visit three vaccine facilities across the country, saying the prime minister’s visit to these centres developing vaccine against coronavirus will boost the morale of frontline warriors. Sharma also said that the PM’s visit will also reassure the nation about the efforts taken by the government to tackle COVID-19.
Sharma’s comment left everyone surprised as the Congress has mocked PM Modi’s vaccine tour with Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala attacking the prime minister for visiting vaccine facilities amid the raging protests by farmers at Delhi border.
It is to be noted that Anand Sharma, who was a minister in the UPA government, is part of the group of 23 Congress leaders who wrote a letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi calling for massive overhaul in the organisational structure of the party.
“Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi visit to Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadila was a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for Covid-19. That alone will lift morale of frontline warriors and reassure the nation,” Sharma tweeted.
But Sharma came up with a clarification shortly and said, “Regretting the error in our earlier tweet where the lines got misplaced, resulting in some avoidable confusion. The original tweet reads as follows.”
