He said that people across India have put their trust in the leadership of Narendra Modi.

Referring to the phase of COVID-19 pandemic, Karad said that in the past developing vaccine and then administering it, used to take years.”But when COVID-19 outbreak was reported in India, the country saw the vaccine being developed in record time,” said Karad, who is doctor by profession.

He said that the 220 crore doses of the vaccine were administered to the people in the country, free of cost. “It would have cost us Rs 3,000 per vaccine, if we had to buy it from abroad,” Karad said.

The minister said that India took up world’s biggest vaccination drive  in a phased manner.

Karad recalled how the opposition parties were criticising the vaccine itself. He said that the second and third wave in the country could be controlled only due to the vaccination.
