Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday rejected the amendments suggested by the Centre to GUJCOC, saying it would amount to taking away the "teeth and nails" of the legislation.

"The amendments suggested by the Centre amount to taking away the teeth and nails of the Gujarat Control of Organised Crime Act (GUJCOC)," he told reporters on the sidelines of the BJP National Executive meeting in New Delhi.

Mr. Amit Shah, the state Home Minister told “UPA Government was playing vote bank politics and toying around with all important issues of security”. It defies the logic, he said, that the UPA had allowed Maharashtra to enact a similar law while it was denying the same right to Gujarat.

He said Bill was passed by the assembly on the basis of guidelines from the Centre to combat organised crime.

One of the amendments being suggested to the state government is that the provision that confession before a police officer will be admissible should be dropped.

Gujarat Government disparaged UPA Government for "failing" to take a decision on the bill in its entire five-year term.

PM lauds role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive on completion of 1 year of vaccine drive. The Prime Minister has lauded the role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive. He also said that India's vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19.

In response to a tweet by MyGovIndia, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets said;

"Today we mark #1YearOfVaccineDrive.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
