New Delhi : The former Union Minister and Congress leader Anand Sharma praised Prime Minster Modi for visiting vaccine development centres on Sunday.

Sharma's praise for Modi comes just a day after Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala criticised the Prime Minister.

Sharma, the deputy leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha , was among 23 leaders who had sought reforms in the party writing to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Sharma tweeted welcoming the Prime Minister's visit to the Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadilla as "a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for Covid-19".

"That alone will lift morale of frontline warriors and reassure the nation," he said.

"Also respecting the Institutions that India has built over decades that have expertise and potential making India worlds largest vaccine manufacturer. Urging PM to ensure that an efficient and equitable platform is functional as the vaccine arrives," he posted.

The stand taken by Anand Sharma is just opposite to what Surjewala said on Saturday.

"Wish the PM talks to farmers on the road instead of flying in the aircraft," Surjewala had said in a tweet.

"Coronavirus vaccine will be found by scientists, farmers will feed the country and Modi ji and BJP leaders will handle television," Surjewala said.

The Prime Minister undertook a three city tour to conduct an extensive review of the vaccine development and manufacturing process, visiting the Zydus Biotech Park in Ahmedabad, Bharat Biotech in Hyderabad and the Serum Institute of India in Pune.
