Goa: Goa’s leader of opposition and ex-CM Digambar Kamat slammed Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman for promising free Covid vaccines for Bihar as part of BJP’s poll promises for the upcoming Bihar assembly elections.
“It is unfortunate that the Union finance minister is politicising the Covid pandemic and is using the vaccine, which is yet to come, to gain political mileage in the Bihar elections. Who authorised the BJP government to be selective in distribution of the vaccine and on what basis,” he said.
Kamat went to the extent of saying that Sitharaman, after pushing the country towards “financial bankruptcy”, is showing “mental bankruptcy” by suggesting that the Covid vaccine can be selectively supplied to states. “Covid vaccine is the right of every citizen and no one can play politics about it by being selective,” he said.
