Several Congress leaders are down with COVID, including former PM Manmohan Singh, now stable at AIIMS; Anand Sharma and former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda admitted to Medanta and former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh.

Earlier, the Congress leader hit out at the government over its vaccine policy, alleging it is discriminatory and that there is no vaccine guarantee for the weaker sections.

He also said that there will be no free vaccines for those between the age of 18 and 45 years.

“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 said in a tweet.
