Mangaluru: Congress MLA UT Khader on Saturday said that rather than innoculating Group D health workers in the first phase of the Covid-19 vaccination drive launched today, the ministers who launched the drive should have taken the vaccine shots.


Taking to Twitter, Khader expressed pleasure over availability of a vaccine for novel coronavirus. “Instead of experimenting the vaccine on poor group D employees, the ministers who so grandiosely inaugurated the vaccination drive should have taken the vaccine themselves to instill confidence among the people,” he tweeted.

His remarks come in the backdrop of doubts raised over the efficacy of the vaccines by the Congress, asking as to why not a single government functionary stepped forward to get themselves inoculated.
