“No free vaccines for 18-45 yr olds. Middlemen brought in without price controls. No vaccine guarantee for weaker sections. GOI’s vaccine discrimination - not distribution - strategy!” he tweeted earlier in the day.
Gandhi tested positive for the coronavirus disease on Tuesday. He had campaigned extensively in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, where assembly elections were held.
Announcing about this on Twitter, the Congress leader said that he is “experiencing mild symptoms”.
He began his campaign in West Bengal too, but decided to curtail it due to the coronavirus situation in the state and country.
Rahul Gandhi’s Covid positive result came a day after former prime minister Manmohan Singh and party leader Anand Sharma contracted the disease.
