In a departure from the Congress’s sustained campaign against the BJP government’s handling of the pandemic, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to three facilities that are developing COVID-19 vaccines.

“Prime minister Shri Narendra Modi visit to Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadilla was a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for COVID-19 That alone will lift morale of frontline warriors and reassure the nation,” Mr. Sharma tweeted.

Mr. Sharma heads the Parliamentary Panel on Home Affairs, which is studying the government’s response to the pandemic. Mr. Sharma is one of the key signatories of the ‘G-23’ letter seeking reforms in the workings of the Congress party, including internal elections. Despite harsh reactions from some quarters against the 23 signatories initially, there has been no overhauling or rejig within the party.
