PM Modi Asks BJP MPs to Turn ‘Facilitators’ For ‘Seva Hi Sangathan’ Vaccination Campaign
In the parliamentary party meeting of the BJP on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed MPs to ensure they work towards increasing the scope of the Covid-19 vaccination drive and act as “facilitators” and “help people”.
The BJP has launched the hashtag “#SevaHiSangathan”, which has also been translated in various languages apart from Hindi and English. Through the campaign, the BJP karyakartas learn about the steps they need to take to aid people in the vaccination process.
Some of the instructions on the campaign is to go to door-to-door and sensitise citizens about the eligibility criteria of vaccination in the ongoing phase. Ministers have also been instructed to help people with registration on Co-Win and Aarogya Setu app and set up help desks at vaccination centres and in public places.
The MPS are needed to ensure clean drinking water at vaccination facilities and run awareness programmes through various social media platforms, share photographs of the vaccination of eminent personalities to encourage the general population.
All public representatives must play an active role in this massive vaccination drive and organise video conferences at various levels to kick start the program within a week’s time.
Senior party leaders, including Rajya Sabha MP Dr Anil Jain, have also taken meetings with various state leaders to tell them how to go about this renewed vaccination drive.
A few MPs like Bangalore South representative Tejasvi Surya and Kutch MP Vinod Chavda have started taking such initiatives and have shared the pictures on Twitter.
On Tuesday Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that “encouraging people to vaccinate themselves as India fights covid should be considered as one of the greatest services to humanity and not a mere job.”
In the second phase, India is looking to innoculate close to 27 crore people, including senior citizens above 60 of age and people 45 years and above with certain comorbidities.
