The piece in Hindu which tries to "fact check" the PM’s remark on vaccination in India ends up further exposing the country’s past failures. For years, India had to depend wait and depend on the world for vaccination for infectious diseases. (1/n)
The article itself recognizes that Small Pox was eradicated in North America and Europe by 1953 itself while India achieved this in 1975. (2/n). Image
The vaccination programme from 1960s relied heavily on global support. It took almost a decade for the country to achieve self-sufficiency in producing the freeze-dried vaccine. Bifurcated needles required for vaccination were provided by WHO.… (3/n).
For Polio, the “Fact Check” recognizes that vaccine was available in the US in 1960. However, in India vaccination with OPV started in 1979 and it had to be imported. (4/n)…
The "fact check" itself reports that IPV was not licensed for manufacturing in India till 2006. Perhaps, we should ask why did we have to depend on imported vaccines for so many years? (5/n)
Similarly, for Hepatitis B, vaccination in the US started in 1982. In India, Hepatitis B was added to the immunization programme in India in 2002.…. (n/n)

How Alt News does Manipulated Fact Checks.

Mamata wrote 2 letters to PM Modi to allow vaccine procurement by states. One in Feb, other on April 18 (pic 2).

Alt News only mentions Feb letter to say the demand wasn't mandated. Why did they hide the April 18 letter?
Next, Alt News tries to mislead on Rahul Gandhi's letter.

Claims Rahul only demanded 'greater say in procurement', doesn't mean state purchase. So what does it mean?

Same letter 4th point (Pic 2), Rahul clearly raises issue of states not allowed to procure vaccine.
Alt News then claims, no Opposition leader demanded to directly procure vaccines.

Completely Fake News!

MK Stalin in his letter to PM on April 18 demanded to lift restrictions on direct procurement.…

How Kejriwal fools Public (Thread)

Kejriwal hasn't procured any ration for his scheme, but says center is stopping his scheme.

He wants to divest ration from NFSA/PMGKAY for his scheme and devoid poor people of Ration.
Center is ready to provide additional ration to Kejriwal for his scheme.

But Kejriwal wants to give distribution of Foodgrains under NFSA to private contractors, which will be selected by bribe and there will always be legal cases and that will cause delay in distribution.
National Food Security Act clearly states that distribution of foodgrains under NFSA cannot be used under any other name other than NFSA, it's the Act.

Kejriwal wants to use Ration of NFSA, do his branding and give contract to AAP linked private distributors to Loot money.

Anish Kapoor has been for long doing propaganda for Congress.

From 2015, he has been continuously shaming India by calling it a Hindu Taliban.

His hatred for Modi is very old.
From 2013, Anish Kapoor has been giving Anti-Modi statements at every time when Congress wants.

He is very close to Congress and Sonia Gandhi
In 2014, Anish Kapoor lead Anti-Modi charge in UK media.

As expected Congress IT Cell worker @free_thinker has come up with stupid fact checks to say that Toolkit is Fake.

Alt News gives argument that Toolkit said help only if the person tags IYC and showed one SS that didn't have tag.

But truth is, she did tag IYC and used hashtag.
Here's the tweet which taklu couldn't see, because of the money paid by Congress?
Next Congress IT Cell worker @free_thinker gives argument that the term 'Modi Variant' wasn't used by Congress workers, so document is Fake.

Toolkit said- "By Friendly Intellectuals and Opinion Makers", for greater acceptability

It wasn't meant to be used by Congress Workers.

Congress attacking approval of Indian Vaccine was very much expected because it has been continuously targeting all the institutions throughout the Modi Govt.

Now attacking Indian Health experts, scientists and medical institutions because they approved a Make in India Vaccine.
When CAG report said there is no scam in Rafale deal, Congress attacked CAG calling it a worthless report.

Also accused CAG of working for Modi by calling it 'Chowkidar Auditor General Report'

This is how Congress has been targeting all the institutions.
When Indian Army said we did surgical strike, Congress started questioning them that where is the proof.

Congress can stoop to any level for its Poltics. Same it is doing now on Vaccine.
