Anand Sharma Praises PM Modi; Congress On Backfoot
New Delhi: Congress was on the backfoot following senior party leader Anand Sharma’s praise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his visit to vaccine development centres, reported news agency IANS.
Sharma’s praise for the prime minister came just a day after Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala criticised Modi.
Sharma, the deputy leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, was also part of 23 leaders who had written to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for reforms in the party.
Sharma welcomed the Prime Minister’s visit to the Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadilla, in a series of tweets, as “a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for Covid-19”.
“That alone will lift morale of frontline warriors and reassure the nation,” he said.
“Also respecting the Institutions that India has built over decades that have expertise and potential making India worlds largest vaccine manufacturer. Urging PM to ensure that an efficient and equitable platform is functional as the vaccine arrives,” Sharma posted.
