Union Ministers slam Rahul Gandhi

Harsh Vardhan

New Delhi: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has come down heavily on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his tweet questioning vaccine availability in the country.

“Just yesterday, I put out facts on vaccine availability for the month of July. What is Rahul Gandhiji’s problem? Does he not read? Does he not understand? There is no vaccine for the virus of arrogance and ignorance!! Congress must think of a leadership overhaul!” Vardhan said.

An hour earlier, Rahul Gandhi posted this one line in Hindi: “July has come, the vaccine has not arrived.”

Union Minister Piyush Goyal said Rahul Gandhi “should understand that the display of petty politics is not appropriate at this time.”

He further clarified that 120 million Covid-19 vaccine doses will be available in July, which is separate from the supply of private hospitals.
