‘Sonia Ji, Raebareli Not Your Family?’: Ministers Take on Congress After Report on Low Vaccination

Union Ministers Hardeep Singh Puri, Anurag Thakur, Smriti Irani, and Dr Jitendra Singh on Saturday hit out at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for the low Covid-19 vaccination rate in her Lok Sabha constituency Raebareli, in Uttar Pradesh.

Reacting to News18’s report on Raebareli being the district with the lowest vaccination rate as per population in Uttar Pradesh, Union Minister of State for Finance & Corporate Affairs Anurag Thakur said in a tweet: “Smt Sonia Gandhi ji, are the people of Raebareli not like your own family? Why did you secretly get vaccinated; propagate vaccine hesitancy, while ignoring Raebareli?”

Union Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri, sharing the report, remarked that people looked up to their elected representatives for hope and inspiration. “While it is reassuring that Smt Sonia Gandhi has received both doses of vaccine she should now appeal to people of Rae Bareilly to get vaccinated as well. With just 4.6% people jabbed it needs to do better,” he said.

Union Cabinet Minister for Textiles and Women & Child Development Smriti Irani also hit out at the Congress chief on Twitter. “The misinformation spread by Sonia’s party and her allies about the Covid vaccine has hurt the security of the people in her own parliamentary constituency. In fact, she never considered the voters as her own, just used them for political gain,” she said.
