Lucknow : Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has said that he will not get vaccinated for COVID-19 now as the “BJP’s vaccine” could not be trusted.
“I will not take the COVID-19 vaccine at this moment. That too given by Bharatiya Janata Party. How can I trust BJP’s vaccine, not a chance. When our government will be formed, everyone will get a free vaccine. We cannot take the BJP vaccine”, said Yadav at a press conference on Saturday.
Yadav’s statement comes as dry runs for the vaccine have been started across the country.
“What is the need for dry dun in the country. This government was eliminating coronavirus by clapping hands and beating utensils. What is the need for such a large cold chain? What is the need for the vaccine?”, said Yadav, mocking the BJP.
Yadav further went on to promise free vaccine if the Samajwadi Party was elected to power in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections scheduled for 2022. (With ANI inputs).
