Make Sure Covaxin Accepted Globally, People Facing Travel Curbs: Mamata Banerjee
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday urged the Centre to immediately take steps to ensure that people vaccinated with Covaxin are not restricted to travel to foreign countries.
Speaking to reporters at state secretariat Nabanna, Ms Banerjee claimed that Covaxin has also created problems with neighbouring Bangladesh and Brazil.
"Covaxin has not been authorised by foreign countries and not accepted there. Several students, aspiring for higher studies abroad, are facing difficulties in travelling because they have taken the Covaxin doses," she said.
"Covaxin is the brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and it has even created problems with Brazil and Bangladesh," Ms Banerjee said.
The Chief Minister said that those who have taken Covishield doses are not facing any problem.
