Ballari: Social Welfare Minister B Sriramulu said that the Congress party had misled the people on vaccination and it led to a surge in Covid-19 deaths in the state.

Addressing presspersons he said, “Congress party misled the people on vaccination by creating hesitancy and that it should own up the responsibility for the Covid-19 deaths. Four months back the party, led by Opposition leader Siddaramaiah and KPCC president D K Shivakumar, launched a campaign to create doubts in the minds of people about Covid vaccine.

“Congress created hesitancy, said vaccines can cause infertility so on, so forth… Because of propaganda against Covid-19 jabs, people became vaccine-hesitant. This led to a surge in Covid-19 deaths,” Sriramulu told reporters here.

He further added thet the Congress leaders wanted the cases and fatalities to soar so that it would bring disrepute to the country and undermine the efforts of Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minister Yediyurappa to tackle the pandemic.

Thanking Former PM H D Deve Gowda and former CM H D Kumaraswamy for cooperating with the government in the fight against the Covid-19, Ramulu said, “Congress should learn from JD(S).”
