Dr. Rajani , who has denied the allegations as false news, has issued a statement regarding this issue.

“According to the application, our vaccination is not due on January 16th. However, we were notified in advance on January 16, the first day of the vaccination campaign. Therefore, we had to re-register and the process was delayed. The media were in a hurry to register the vaccination for us. So, we finally decided to pose for some photos, ”Nagendrappa, Tumkur District Welfare Officer, told India Today.

local TV channel reporter told the TNM News that the media asked them to pose as vaccinating for some photos. The video taken by someone while posing for the photo is being spread incorrectly.
