BJP leaders target Congress over polio record

There is a narrative that the previous governments had handled the polio vaccination program with great efficiency unlike the current government’s handling of the coronavirus vaccination drive. Amidst this, a few BJP leaders have started questioning the Congress party’s track record on the elimination of polio.

As per them, India took a full 30 years to eradicate polio. Unlike what several Netizens and narrative-makers are saying, India took a really long time to eradicate polio, they are iterating indirectly. 

“I ask Congress what was their policy for polio that it took 30 years to give polio drops,” BJP leader and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has been quoted as saying by the ANI. 
Of late, BJP Ministers such as Kishan Reddy are highlighting that the entire adult population of India will be vaccinated by the end of this year. If this happens, it will be one of the greatest success stories in the history of India.
