”Vaccine is the biggest weapon available to us in this battle against Covid-19. I urge all eligible citizens to get vaccinated and also encourage people around you to get vaccinated. Let us continue to stay protected by wearing masks and following social distance,” he said in another tweet.

As suggested by the Prime Minister at Thursday’s videoconferencing with various Chief Ministers, the state government is organising vaccination drives from April 11- Jyotiba Phule’s birthday till April 14- Ambedkar’s birthday.
