In the country, two indigenous Covid vaccines have been approved for emergency use with some conditions on Sunday. Since then, politics has started regarding the Corona vaccine. On the one hand, senior leaders of the Congress and Samajwadi Party have questioned the approval of the vaccine, to which the BJP has reacted strongly. BJP has termed the attitude of Congress and SP as an insult to the scientists of the country.
Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor and Ramesh Jairam Ramesh have also tweeted after the Controller General of Drugs of India (DCGI) approved the limited emergency use of the vaccine ‘Covidshield’ and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxine from Oxford. Congress leaders have sought answers from Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan raising questions about the emergency use of the vaccine.
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted, “Covaxin has not been tested for Phase III yet. Approval is received prematurely and can be dangerous. Dr. Harshvardhan should clarify. Its use should have been avoided until the full trial was over. During this time India can start the campaign with the AstraZeneca vaccine. ”
Congress leader and former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh also raised a similar question, stating that India is a biotech first-class enterprise, but the surprising thing is that the internationally accepted protocols related to the Phase III trials were modified for covaxin Are going Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan should clarify this.
The BJP has reacted strongly to the questions of Congress leaders. BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain has described it as an insult to the nation and the scientists of the country.
