Vested quarters spreading propaganda about the inoculation campaign, claims the senior Awami League leader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday trashed the criticism against the recent mass vaccination campaign describing the drive as effective and successful.  

Quader, who is also the general secretary of Awami League, made the remarks while addressing a discussion meeting, organized by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, on the occasion of National Mourning Day on Saturday morning.

He asserted that there is no crisis of Covid jabs in the country and there won’t be in the future.

"All that is being said about the implementation and delivery of the mass vaccination program is unacceptable. Vaccines are currently coming from different countries and sources and it will continue to come in the next six months," he assured.

Quader said that the spontaneous response of the people in the mass vaccination drive is very promising, even though some people do not like to see it as a positive development. 

The mass inoculation campaign would continue as the jabs would continue to come, he added. 

He also urged the vested interest groups to refrain from spreading propaganda about the vaccination program.

The Awami League leader also called upon the medical community to continue to be by the side of the people with the vow to serve humanity.

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government has successfully tackled the pandemic situation overcoming some limitations since the beginning of its onslaught.

The credit goes to the visionary leadership of the prime minister as she maintained an effective balance between saving life and livelihood in fighting the deadly virus, he added.

Prof Dr Md Sharfuddin Ahmed, vice-chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, presided over the function while Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Malek, former minister AFM Ruhul Haque and BMA President Dr Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin spoke virtually.

Swadhinata Chikitshak Parishad (Swachip) President Dr Iqbal Arsenal, General Secretary Dr MA Aziz and Awami League Health Secretary Dr Rokeya Sultana were also present among others.
