The Bharatiya Janata Party has initiated a campaign on Prime Minister Modi’s birthday, that is, today. The party aims to set a record of the maximum number of Covid-19 inoculations on the day, said sources. The party leaders are prepping its health volunteers to ensure that the maximum number of people receive the jab on this day.
BJP General Secretary Tarun Chugh, also in charge of the health volunteers initiative, said that party chief JP Nadda wanted to celebrate the birthday of the Prime Minister in a special way.
“What can be more special than protecting people for which the Prime Minister is working day and night. It is a matter of pride that we have two Covid vaccines in our name and we have been able to protect citizens from this deadly pandemic. It would be a befitting tribute to PM Modi who strived hard to ensure people remain protected from Covid,” said Chugh.
Senior leaders in the BJP said that this would also be a befitting reply to those who tried to create vaccine hesitancy in people for purely political reasons and thus endangered the lives of people.
