Vaccination campaign program for deadly virus Covid-19 is about to start in the country. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi rejected the proposal of vaccinating MLAs and Mps first. Earlier, PM Modi has clarified that 30 million people that include health workers and frontline workers will be vaccinated in the first phase. No one, including the public representative, should try to take a leap to get the vaccine. Prime Minister Narendra Modi turned down the proposal vaccinating all MPs and MLAs stating that it would give a bad signal to the people.
Prime Minister Modi discussed with Chief Ministers on Monday on driving vaccination campaign in the respective states. Meanwhile, Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy demanded that MPs and MLAs should be given the Covid-19 vaccine on a priority basis. MPs and MLAs are also at the forefront in dealing with the virus and they are to interact with the people of their constituencies.
The Prime Minister gave a clear instruction to the Chief Ministers that no special priorities should be given to leaders. The representatives of the public will get the vaccine only when their turn comes.
