Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Hyderabad on the 28th of November.
On the 28th of November, the City would witness a high voltage political presence of several central leaders and state political leaders.
In the wake of the upcoming Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, political leaders of several parties would address several rallies, roadshows and gatherings in the City.
While J.P. Nadda, the National President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would campaign for the BJP, K. Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana would campaign for the Telangana Rashtriya Samithi (TRS) on the 28th of November.
However, the visit of Mr. Modi is apolitical and revolves around the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 vaccine.
Similar to the Serum Institute of India (SII,) Bharat Biotech International Private Limited is also producing the vaccine for the Novel Coronavirus infection.
PM Modi’s visit to Hyderabad was a sudden decision.
The visit is said to be a short visit as Mr. Modi is likely to fly back to New Delhi by 6:00 P.M., on the 28th of November.
Mr. Modi would land in a special aircraft at Hakimpet airport and visit Bharat Biotech.
After reviewing the COVID-19 vaccine, Mr. Modi would also interact with scientists.
Hyderabad based pharma company, Bharat Biotech International Private Limited, along with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR,) is working on another potential candidate vaccine for COVID-19.
Bharat Biotech’s COVAXIN could also be considered for emergency approval after it submits data from phase I and II trials. Currently, the COVAXIN is under third phase trials. These trials are being held at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Science (NIMS.)
The timing has created a sort of stir in political circles as it would be ahead of the GHMC elections.
The GHMC elections are scheduled to be held on the 1st of December.
The results of the GHMC elections would be announced on the 4th of December. The major parties contesting the GHMC elections are the BJP, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Indian National Congress (INC.)
