Twitter is going after Chetan Bhagat, yet again.

For those who may be unaware, India’s vaccination drive against Covid-19 has broken a new record with over 10 million doses being administered in a single day across the country. The data was released by the Union health ministry’s Co-WIN platform.

This brings both relief and hope as, at this rate, 32 per cent of the total population of the country is most likely to be vaccinated by the end of this year.

Chetan Bhagat took to Twitter to take credit for the amped-up vaccination drive. “Happy to have contributed to bring attention to slow vaccination back in April and May,” he wrote.

“My column from then here, making the case for increasing pace 5-10x, which we have finally achieved now. #StaySafe,” continued the Tweet. He had also attached a link to his opinion article.

“This was avoidable. We made mistakes. I’m not talking about spotting mistakes with the benefit of hindsight. For instance, the first lockdown of April 2020 made some sense then but now seems too draconian. I’m talking about the big blunders we made as a nation, which were completely avoidable. That’s what we’re paying for today. The biggest one: Not being bothered about securing vaccines in 2020,” read a part of the column in question.

“We made mistakes. Let’s fix them. Let’s do what it takes to vaccinate every Indian adult in the next three months,” was his conclusion.

Twitter, of course, was in complete agreement, but only sarcastically.

“Sir, I still remember that you warned Trump about Taliban but yet poor Biden is being blamed for whatever is happening today. Damn, over 2,80,000 cases in last 24 hours in Pfizer wali country,” wrote one user.

“Yes , when Prime minister Modi read your article then , he offered his resignation but then scientists promised him that They have also read the article of Shri Chetan Bhagat and they have instructed the fellow scientists to speed up the vaccination. Bharat Ratna for CB !” wrote another.
