Ensure Covid jab for all above 18 years in Assam: JP Nadda | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: BJP national president JP Nadda has directed the chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and the newly-appointed state party president Bhabesh Kalita to take Covid-19 vaccination as a mission and ensure vaccination of everyone above 18 years of age.
Nadda, who addressed an executive meeting of the Assam BJP on Tuesday, asked Kalita – who later in the day took charge as state BJP chief – to ensure that all party workers engaged in vaccination awareness drives throughout the state to remove any hesitancy if it still exists.
Pointing out that Assam has done well in the Covid vaccination drive, Nadda said: “As many as 2,300 inoculation centres have been set up in the state and around 3.5 lakh doses of vaccines are being administered per day. The state has administered 69 lakh doses so far. Assam has set a target to inoculate 2.25 crore people. I would like to thank chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for his efforts and wish him success in achieving this target.”
He asked the state government and the party to personally visit hospitals and ensure oxygen plants in every district hospital before the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic hits the country. He said Assam under the leadership of CM Sarma has done well in generating oxygen.
Nadda lashed out at the opposition and accused them of promoting vaccine hesitancy among people. He said the opposition leaders emerge during elections, not at the time of pandemic to help the people.
The BJP national president asked CM Sarma to ensure proper implementation of the central schemes which are meant to reach out to the poor and marginalized sections of society.
He appealed to party workers to help the government in distribution of free ration to every poor and marginalised person of the state.
Nadda thanked the people of Assam for giving the party a mandate for the second time by rejecting ‘communal politics’ in the state. He also thanked former state party president Ranjeet Kumar Dass for making the party win the assembly elections.
