While speaking to media in Jamshedpur, the Health and Family Welfare Minister of Jharkhand, Banna Gupta spoke on COVID-19 vaccination. Gupta said, "We won't do anything by keeping political differences/political ambitions in mind, as far as public welfare and national welfare is concerned. We will stand with Centre as far as public welfare and national welfare are concerned." "I would just like to say that before using any vaccine, Central Government should adjudge its authenticity, relevance and utility. Its proper exercise is essential. People of this country should not be made lab rats," he added.
