Defending his remarks he allegedly made against vaccine critics, BJP MLA from Sardhana in Uttar Pradesh, Sangeet Som said that people who don’t trust the scientists in the country can leave the country.
“People who don’t trust our scientists, government, Army and police should leave the country. If they trust Pakistan, they should go there,” he said. “Scientists of our country make medicines, they don’t hurt anyone’s sentiments. So people who have double-standards and trust Pakistan can go there,” he said.
Som made the statement when he was asked about some statements by some Muslim organisations in India about pig fat being found in the corona vaccine.
Replying to this Som said that if their faith is in Pakistan, they should go to Pakistan, but should not doubt the scientists. Sangeet Som also attacked the statement of Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav in which he had linked the coronavirus vaccine to the BJP.
Earlier addressing a programme of Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) at Ashish Garden in Chandausi as the chief guest, Som attacked Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav. “During his government, Uttar Pradesh turned into a Mughal sultanate but he would be the last ruler of the Mughal rule as he would not get another chance now,” Som had claimed.
