Meera Chopra reacts to allegation of posing as a frontline worker to get the vaccine
The second wave of COVID-19 caused a panic as there was a massive shortage of medical equipment and even vaccines once the drive started across the country. While there is a very limited supply of vaccine shots for the 18-45 age group, the government has been rolling out the vaccine for the above 45 age group and frontline workers on priority.
Meera Chopra, who has worked in several Tamil and Telugu films and is known for her last Bollywood film, Section 375 also got her first jab and posted about it on social media. The actress posted a picture of her getting the injection and this very post may have got her into a pickle with the authorities.
Soon after her post, Niranjan Davkhare, MLC and BJP’s Thane unit president posted a screenshot of the ID Meera used to get the vaccine. The picture shows her as a supervisor for an agency called Om Sai Aarogya Care Pvt. Ltd under which she got the vaccine as a frontline worker.
Meera instantly deleted the post of her vaccine shot but Niranjan Devkhare asked for an enquiry against her to find out whether she is actually employed as a supervisor with the agency or now.
Reacting to this, Meera said, “We all want to get vaccinated and we all are trying our best to do that. Similarly I also tried trying asking help from people I know and after 1 month of trying I was able to get myself registered in one of the centres. I was just asked to send in my aadhaar card. The ID that has been floating on social media is not mine. I was asked for my aadhaar card for registration and that’s the only ID I gave. No ID is valid until it has your signature. I myself, saw that so called ID card for the first time, when it came on Twitter. I totally condemn such practices and if any such ID has been made I would want to know how and why.”
