The MP has been vocal about issues pertaining to vaccination and oxygen supplies in Assam as well as other Northeastern states.
Earlier, he had claimed that the state government’s ‘enhanced vaccination drive’ that started from June 21 was a ‘failure’ as the target was not fulfilled.
According to him, the state government began the enhanced immunization drive from June 21 with a target of administering 3 lakh vaccinations per day for 10 days, the target was achieved only on two days. The rest of the days did not even achieve the 2 lakhs mark, Gogoi claimed.
Gogoi had also alleged that several COVID deaths have gone unreported in the state and that it didn’t count the people who were found positive posthumously. He had urged that the process of declaring COVID-19 deaths should be revised and clarified.
