Kochi: The Kerala High Court has sought the explanation of the Central government on a petition questioning the Prime Minister’s photo in the Covid vaccination certificate. Peter Myaliparambil, a Kottayam native, filed the petition questioning the Prime Minister’s photo in the Covid certificate. He has stated in the petition that he took the paid vaccine from a private hospital and receiving a certificate with the Prime Minister's photo on it is violation of his fundamental rights. He said that keeping the Prime Minister's photo does not benefit anyone in any way. A private document is received after taking the vaccine. The Supreme Court had earlier issued a warning about the use of such propagandas to glorify political leaders.

He has also stated in the petition that changes must be made in the Cowin Portal so that those who wish to take the vaccine certificate without the Prime Minister’s photo may be able to do so.
