JP Nadda answered Congress leader P Chidambaram's questions on record vaccination, said- India is not running lame

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party President J.P. Taking a jibe at former Union minister P. Chidambaram for his remarks on the pace of vaccination, Nadda on Wednesday said India is not lame, but is running on the strength it has drawn from its citizens. Quoting Chidambaram’s tweet, Nadda said, “India is not lame, but running on strength from its citizens. After the record set on Monday, there have been more than 50 lakh vaccinations on Tuesday and Wednesday also. The figures are enough to dislike the Congress. Actually, it is the culture of the Congress that when India makes a record, the party raises questions.

It is worth noting that earlier this month also former Finance Minister and Congress leader P. Chidambaram had accused the Center regarding the vaccination policy. However, he withdrew his statement after some time. Chidambaram had targeted PM Modi over the revised vaccine policy. P. Chidambaram tweeted, “Hoarding on Sunday, vaccinated on Monday and come back limping on Tuesday. This is the secret behind the world record of one day vaccination. I am sure this feat will find a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Chidambaram taunted in the next tweet, “Who knows, maybe, the Nobel Prize in Medicine should be given to the Modi government. Modi hai to mumkin hai, should be read now, Modi hai toh miracle hai. After raising questions from Chidambaram Along with Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, BJP Yuva Morcha National President Tejashwi Surya has also attacked him and appreciated the steps being taken by the government.
