A video of Prashant Bairwa, a Congress Member of Legislative Assembly from Rajasthan, is doing the rounds on social media in which he is nonchalantly negating the need of COVID-19 vaccine and is also making some weird claims.
"If you do good deeds and collect the good wishes of people, then coronavirus can't kill you," he is seen saying in the video.
The MLA from Niwai also asserted that he will not be getting into a queue to take the vaccine which is slated to be rolled out soon in India.

"I have met around 25,000 people during the pandemic till now and nothing has happened to me. There is no need to take the vaccine. The threat of COVID-19 has receded anyway now," he adds.
Bairwa also requested Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to end night curfew in the state and relax some of the restrictions imposed with a view to curbing the spread of the virus.
