New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has taken the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Party sources informed that Rahul Gandhi took the first dose of the vaccine on Wednesday, adding he did not attend the Parliament on Thursday and Friday for this reason.
Sources added the former Congress president took the vaccine three months after being infected with corona. It has, however, not yet been revealed which dose of vaccine he has taken.
He had said in a tweet earlier on April 20 that he has been infected with Covid-19. Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party leader Priyanka Gandhi have already taken the corona vaccine.
The BJP had earlier questioned on many occasions why did Rahul Gandhi not take the corona vaccine.
“Today we want to ask Sonia ji, Rahul ji, and Priyanka Gandhi that all three of you should tell when you took your first and second dose of vaccine or did not take it. Does the Gandhi family believe in the vaccine or not? This question is not only of BJP, but of entire India,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told a press conference on June 16.
Congress has on the other hand alleged that the government has been diverting from issues while accusing the ruling dispensation of mismanagement regarding the corona issue.
Lambasting the ruling BJP, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala had in response said that party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi has taken the first dose of the vaccine and added Rahul Gandhi will get the vaccine on the advice of doctors after recovering completely from Covid.
