The Congress has put up big banners outside its state office here asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi why he had exported anti-coronavirus vaccines meant for the children of the country to other nations. The black banners with the question addressed to the prime minister in bold, white letters hang on the boundary wall of the Congress office here in the heart of the city, drawing the attention of every passerby.
“Modi ji, Hamare bacchon ki vaccine videsh kyon bhej diya? (Modi ji, why did you send the vaccine meant for our children to foreign countries?) read the banners which carry the names of Pradesh Congress president Pritam Singh and the party’s city unit president Lal Chand Sharma. Similar banners came up recently in Delhi prompting authorities to arrest those responsible for putting them up.
The Delhi Police has registered 25 FIRs and arrested as many people under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC and other relevant sections for allegedly pasting the posters in several parts of the city amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown. The Aam Aadmi Party had owned up to putting up posters in many parts of Delhi criticizing the prime minister for the shortage of vaccines.
