An Indian has filed a lawsuit against Prime Minister Narendra Modi claiming that the latter is promoting himself with the vaccination campaign against Corona, but the judge imposed a fine of more than 1,300 dollars on the plaintiff for wasting court time.
Modi was the focus of a massive advertising campaign promoting his government’s achievements in fighting the epidemic despite the deaths of nearly 500,000 Indians due to the pandemic, and his face was plastered on billboards and even on passenger planes alongside a message glorifying India’s reaching the threshold of one billion vaccination doses given to the population.
Peter Mayaliparambil objected to Modi’s face being printed on his vaccine certificate along with a message urging the public to adhere to preventive measures against the Corona virus, saying that he had paid for his own vaccine and that the picture of Modi on his certificate was “no use or wisdom in it.”
He told a court that the vaccination campaign in India had turned into a “media campaign” in Modi’s favour.
But the Kerala High Court dismissed the case, saying it appeared to be politically motivated, and fined him 100,000 rupees ($1322) for wasted time.
Modi’s campaign contrasts with the harsh criticism leveled at his government since the start of the pandemic, with opponents calling for the prime minister’s face to be printed on death certificates for Corona victims.
