Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fully vaccinated, but he took Covaxin. So how could he travel overseas?
Shiv Sena has raised questions about Modi’s just-concluded visit to the United States, wondering how he was allowed entry in America when he had taken a vaccine which is yet to be recognized by World Health Organisation (WHO).
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, in his weekly column in the party mouthpiece Samana, has pointed out that there are different rules for common people and the high and mighty.
“The world has recognised Covishield. However, those who have taken the Covaxin vaccine are now in a fix as they are not allowed to travel to many American-European countries. Then how come Modi, who has taken doses of Covaxin was allowed to land in America? Many students, businessmen were not allowed to travel for having taken doses of Covaxin. If we point that such rules are only for common people and not for the high and mighty, the BJP will criticise us saying that with Modi, everything is possible (Modi Hai Toh Mumkin Hai). Who can stop Modi?” Raut has written.
The BJP said Raut’s remarks on Modi’s tour are childish.
“Their very question on Modi’s American tour exposes their ignorance and displays their childishness,” said BJP legislator Ram Kadam.
