The Chief Minister said that the Opposition has committed crimes against humanity by opposing the COVID-19 vaccines.
"The people who were against the vaccines were committing crimes against humanity and making friends with Corona. They did not care for the poor. When they had the opportunity, they could not do anything. This is why when they are out of power now, they are playing with the lives of the people taking the support of misinformation," he said.
Highlighting his government's "achievements", the Chief Minister said that 50,000 families have been allotted new homes in Kaushambi.
