Kaliabor Lok Sabha MP Gaurav Gogoi on May 20 has lashed out at the Assam government and said that the daily vaccination rate in Assam is extremely poor.
He alleged that the current vaccination rate has left out a majority of the population, leaving them exposed and vulnerable to the virus.
Vaccination is the only defence, he said in a tweet.
“The central and state government should be transparent and communicate the date by which 70% of the Assamese public will be vaccinated,” Gogoi added.
He was reacting to a tweet by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who May 19 informed about the vaccination status of Assam.
Daily vaccination rate in Assam is extremely poor, leaving a majority of our population exposed and vulnerable. Vaccination is the only defence. The central and state government should be transparent and communicate the date by which 70% of the Assamese public will be vaccinated. https://t.co/qWQopCJowO
