New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday, September 19, took a swipe at the government over its claim of having administered record COVID-19 vaccinations in a single day, saying that the “event” is over now.

He also shared a graph of the vaccination trend in the last 10 days, as per data from the Co-WIN website, to show the decline in vaccinations following the record setting day.

India vaccinated 2.5 crore people in a single day on Friday to mark Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday.

Using the hashtag #vaccination, Gandhi said in a tweet, “Event over”.

Gandhi on Saturday had said that he hoped more such record vaccinations happened in the country.

“Looking forward to many more days of 2.1 crore vaccinations. This pace is what our country needs,” he had said on Twitter.
