NDTV has reported that the BJP has asked its ministers, MPs and MLAs, and national and state functionaries to attend events in pockets across the country showcasing the big milestone. Special focus will be on poll-bound states of UP, Gujarat and Punjab during the outreach drive.

The report, quoting sources, said that the immunisation exercise has slowed down slightly due to the festivals of Durga Puja and Navratri. The government now plans to step up the exercise after Dussehra to reach the 100 crore mark at the earliest.

Under the outreach plan, BJP leaders, including ministers and lawmakers, will visit vaccination centres that clocked 100 per cent vaccination and felicitate doctors and healthcare workers, the report added quoting sources.
