Lok Sabha MP and AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal expressing concern over the ‘RSS vaccine’ rumours demanded that state health minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma clear his stand regarding the matter.
Ajmal further urged the health minister to spread awareness among the masses so that normalcy returns to schools.
Panic still prevails in many places particularly Muslim dominated areas following widespread rumours that the vaccine will be administered in schools to make students, both boys and girls, infertile.
The vaccine is rumoured to be a plan of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to check abrupt population growth.
Following this, presence of students have witnessed sharp fall in schools at Chirang, Baksa, Barpeta, Nalbari, Kamrup (Rural), Goalpara
Dhubri MP Ajmal also visited several schools in the Goalpara districts on Wednesday.
