Indian National Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari raised questions on COVAXIN's efficacy. He said, "Many eminent doctors have raised questions with regard to the efficacy and safety of COVAXIN with government saying that people will not be able to choose as to which vaccine they would like to take. This goes against the entire doctrine of informed consent." "If the vaccine is so safe and reliable and efficacy of the vaccine is beyond question then how is it that not a single functionary of the government has stepped forward to get themselves vaccinated as it has happened in other countries around the world?," he said.
The Congress proposed that the TMC should merge with it instead to put up a united fight against the BJP. The BJP, which has emerged as a potent force in the state, said the TMC's suggestion amounted to admission that it was not in a position to take on the saffron party on its own in the assembly polls in West Bengal due in April-May. "If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should rally behind Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party," senior TMC MP Sougata Roy said. Reacting to the TMC's proposal, state Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the West Bengal's ruling party for the growth of the BJP in the state. "We are not interested in aligning with the TMC. Why is the TMC now interested in an alliance with us after poaching our MLAs over the last 10 years. If Mamata Banerjee is in keen on fighting the BJP, then she should join the Congress as it is the only pan-India platform to fight against communalism," he said.

Dense fog gripped Delhi-NCR with visibility dropping to zero at most places. The IMD said that minimum temperatures are likely to fall by 2-4 °C over parts of northwest India. Flight services from Delhi were hit due to heavy fog enveloping the city-state. Meanwhile, air quality remained in 'severe' category in several parts of Delhi-NCR. Air quality index (AQI) of the national capital on Saturday morning was 441. Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Greater Noida and Noida also recorded 'severe' air quality. This happens mainly due to low wind speed not allowing dispersal of pollutants in the air. Dense fog at isolated pockets is likely over many north Indian states during the next three days. Cold wave conditions are also likely to prevail over the northern states during the next two days.
