Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Sunday, took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his monthly 'Mann ki Baat' address to the nation saying there is only one 'Kaam ki Baat' and that is ending vaccine shortage.
During his address, Modi had hailed the feat of administering over 86 lakh vaccine doses in a single day on June 21 at the start of the new phase of inoculation under which all adults are being given free jabs by the Union government.
Taking to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi, in a tweet in Hindhi, said there is only one thing that matters and that is ending vaccine shortage. Everything else is attempts to distract, he added.
Rahul Gandhi and the Congress have been criticising the government over the issue of vaccination. He had hit out at the Centre recently over the dip in the number of vaccinations after the"historic milestone" of administering 88.09 lakh coronavirus vaccine doses in a single day on June 21. the numbers dipped to over 53.4 lakh the next day.
A few days ago, the Congress leader had said unless coronavirus vaccination is done on a large scale continuously, "our country is not safe". "Sadly, the central government is not able to move beyond a PR event," he had said in a tweet.
