Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra hit back at Samajwadi Party (SP) chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav for saying he would not get vaccinated.

“We can’t even call him a misled youth. When he never listened to his uncle or father, why would he listen to the country? This is a policy of appeasement. It’s not good to spread rumour about vaccine,” Mishra was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Akhilesh Yadav on COVID-19 Vaccine:

Speaking about the vaccine on Saturday, Yadav discouraged people in Uttar Pradesh from getting vaccinated. “How can I trust the BJP’s vaccine, no chance? When our government is formed, everyone will get a free vaccine. We cannot take the BJP vaccine. The inoculation programme under the BJP-led regime cannot be trusted,” Yadav had said.

Keshav Prasad Maurya, the deputy chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, said that Yadav has insulted the country’s doctors and scientists.

“Akhilesh Yadav doesn’t trust the vaccine and people of Uttar Pradesh do not trust him. Questioning the vaccine is an insult to our doctors and scientists. He should apologise,” Maurya said.

Also, he said that a person who has been chief minister should think twice before making such remarks.
