The Congress on Thursday answered the questions raised on the vaccination of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Congress told that Sonia Gandhi has got both doses of Corona Vaccine Coveshield. At the same time, Rahul’s vaccination was scheduled on 16 May, but before that he got corona infected. Now according to the guidelines, they will get the vaccine only after the stipulated time. While advising the BJP, the Congress said that it should stop making useless issues and fulfill the Rajdharma of getting the entire population of the country vaccinated.
BJP had asked- Gandhi family got the vaccine or not?
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra had a press conference on the allegations of mixing calf’s serum in Covaxin on the previous day. He had asked that Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi should tell when they had taken the vaccine. Is Gandhi family vaccinated or not? Does the Gandhi family trust Covaxin? They should answer it.
He had said, ‘They say that when their government comes, they will get the vaccine. Robert Vadra also raised questions about the vaccine. In this global pandemic, we should proceed with scientific thinking, not spread confusion.
What is the whole matter?
In fact, Congress leader Gaurav Pandhi had shared an RTI on Wednesday saying that cows and calves are being killed for the manufacture of covaxin and the Modi government had to inform the people of the country in advance. Bharat Biotech had also clarified these allegations. After this the BJP became aggressive. The BJP had alleged that the Congress was once again spreading confusion. Calf serum is not mixed with Covaxin.
Health Ministry also clarified
After this, the Ministry of Health gave an explanation. The ministry issued a statement saying that wrong information about Covaxin is being shared on social media. Facts have been distorted in the post. The serum of the newborn calf is used only for the preparation of the Vero cells, which then perish on their own. When the vaccine is produced at the last minute, it is not used.
