Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said that Prime Minister Modi had kept his word to avail the COVID vaccination to the COVID Warriors first.
“Modi ji had clearly said that our COVID warriors would be vaccinated first, and then us. To those who were questioning him, he has replied - I was waiting for my turn", he was quoted as saying by ANI.
The minister also informed that the ministers of the government would be availing the paid vaccination facility instead of the free government vaccination facility.
“We ministers have decided to avail paid vaccination facility,” he said.
He further added, “Today, when turn of people above 60 years came, PM was the first to lead from the front. I want to tell the Opposition that you will have enough opportunities to do politics in elections and otherwise, can we not unite in efforts against Corona?”
