In a tweet in Hindi, Akhilesh said, “Seeing the public outrage, the (Central) government has given up politicising the corona vaccine and announced that it would give the vaccine doses.

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav, who had earlier called Covid vaccines “BJP’s vaccines”, on Tuesday said that he would get inoculated with the “Indian government’s vaccine” and urged people to get vaccinated.
