Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said on Friday that the BJP government will arrange free coronavirus vaccines for everyone if voted to power in West Bengal.
However, West Bengal’s ruling party Trinamool Congress (TMC) has made criticised the PM Modi’s statement.
Citing the example of Bihar. Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Derek O’Brien said, “why did the BJP not provide free vaccines even with the same promise in the election?”
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said that from May 5, everyone will be given free vaccines at the initiative of the state government.
“Trinamool Congress (TMC)made this promise yesterday, and BJP is giving today. That’s the big difference between the two teams,”
Derek claimed that the BJP’s promise ahead of the last two rounds of the West Bengal Election 2021 is completely false.
Posting a video on the same tweet, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP questioned, “It is a hoax about the BJP’s vaccine during the election. In Bengal, there are two rounds of votes left, and just then the BJP is making this promise Remember what the BJP did in Bihar! At the time of the election, Bihar had promised to provide free vaccines in the same way But nothing happened after that. The election is over, the BJP has forgotten everything He is talking about giving free vaccine to everyone in Bengal in the same manner Don’t trust the BJP. ”
The BJP-JDU alliance government is in power in Bihar at the moment.
