 'Speaking Against PM Is Like...': BJP's Suvendu Adhikari On Vaccine

Mamata Banerjee and Suvendu Adhikari are pitted against each other in the Nandigram assembly seat

"You will have to take Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vaccine against COVID. He is an elected Prime Minister. Speaking against him is like speaking against democracy. Speaking against him is speaking against Bharat Mata. Pakistan and Bangladesh do not have vaccine, so you will have to take Prime Minister Modi's vaccine," Mr Adhikari told ANI.

Mr Adhikari's remark comes against the backdrop of Ms Banerjee's public address at Egra and Patashpur where she criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over several issues including COVID-19 vaccination.

Ms Banerjee also called Mr Adhikari, a former minister in Trinamool Congress (TMC) government, "Mir Zafar" as he joined the rival camp BJP in December last year.
