Harsh Vardhan hits back at Manmohan for letter to Modi

New Delhi: A day after former Prime Minister and Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh wrote to the PM Narendra Modi, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan today responded sharply to his five-point letter on the Covid-19 situation in the country.

Tweeting the letter to Manmohan Singh, Harsh Vardhan said history would be kinder to him if only his own party, Congress, had followed his advice to PM Narendra Modi.

Harsh Vardhan asked Manmohan Singh to also ask his party to follow his suggestions. Harsh Vardhan said Manmohan Singh’s advice to “not get tempted to go by absolute numbers, but to go by percentage of population covered is not correct’ and asked the former prime minister to ask ‘junior members of Congress to follow your advice.”

Concerned about the rising number of Covid-19 cases in India, former Prime Minister and senior Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh wrote Prime Minister Narendra Modi a five-point suggestion letter to address the Covid-19 crisis.

In a two-page letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the veteran Congress leader said one must not look at absolute numbers, but the percentage of the population vaccinated.
