The post comes days after India vaccinated 2.5 crore people in a single day to mark Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday.
Using the hashtag ‘vaccination’, the Congress leader said in a tweet, “Event over”.
Earlier, on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi had hoped more such record vaccinations happened in the country. “Looking forward to many more days of 2.1 crore vaccinations. This pace is what our country needs,” he had said on Twitter.
Additionally, in a series of tweets, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram had also said he was “happy and grateful that 2.5 crore vaccinations were administered on Friday,” Further, he asked, “But why did we have to wait until the PM’s birthday.”
In another tweet, the former Union finance minister questioned, “Suppose the prime minister’s birthday was on December 31, would the 2.5 crore vaccinations have been done only on the last day of the year.”
“Vaccination is not like cutting a cake on a birthday. Vaccination is a programme, it is a process. It has to be accelerated every day, not scale a peak on a birthday,” he added.
