He also called on people who have not taken the vaccine till now to get inoculated.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a gift of 'vaccine for all, free vaccine'
to the country.
"Tomorrow is the birthday of our beloved prime minister, lets do #VaccineSeva by helping all unvaccinated people including their loved ones, family members and all sections of the society by getting them vaccinated." he said in a tweet in Hindi on Thursday.
