Covid-19: Shiv Sena's Priyanka Chaturvedi 'Disgusted At Harsh Vardhan's Covid Letter Response'
The Centre's attempts to "score political brownie points" in response to her concerned letter over the Covid-19 situation in the country has left the Shiv Sena's Priyanka Chaturvedi "saddened" and "disgusted". In a video message referring to the Union Health Ministry's "disturbing" answer to her suggestions made in "good spirit and intent", she asked what was wrong with her recommendation to open up vaccinations for every adult Indian instead of sticking with the 45-year limit.
"It kind of saddened me, disturbed me, and also disgusted me at the same time, that a letter that was written in good spirit and intent...would hope to get a scientific response...because he is the health minister of the country and not the spokesperson of a political party," Ms Chaturvedi said in her message. "But what he responded with was not just political, but also seeking brownie points by attacking some states."
