Chandigarh, March 6 : Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday trashed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s allegation of Congress-ruled states rejecting Covaxin as a complete lie and part of the ruling party’s false and politically motivated propaganda.
The Chief Minister was responding to a question during an informal media interaction after taking the first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine at the Civil Hospital in Mohali, near here.
When asked how he was feeling after the Covid jab, the Chief Minister said he was in ‘Chardi Kalan’ and was feeling absolutely fine. The dose was administered to him by ANM (Auxilary Nurse and Midwife) Manpreet.
Categorically denying the charge on Covaxin, the Chief Minister slammed BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra’s claim that Punjab, along with other Opposition-ruled states, had expressed doubts and refused to accept vaccination.
“It is not at all true,” he said.
An official from the state Health Ministry later disclosed that Punjab had received 1.34 lakh Covaxin doses, of which 2,500 have already been administered.
