New Delhi: A BJP MP on Wednesday compared the opposition members protesting in Rajya Sabha with "Omicron", alleging that they were a threat to democracy, and asked them to take the "Modi vaccine" to protect themselves from the new Coronavirus variant.

Participating in a short-duration discussion on the situation arising out of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in the Upper House of Parliament, BJP MP Shiv Pratap Shukla alleged that the opposition members were running away from the debate as they did not want to recognise the efforts of the government in controlling the spread of the virus.

He also urged them to follow social distancing norms and wear masks while protesting in the Well of the House.
