On Friday, while addressing the media outside a private hospital in Vadapalani where actor Vivekh was admitted, he claimed that there was no clarity about the ingredients of the vaccine and blamed the Health Secretary for misleading people.
Mansoor also commented that mediapersons should not wear masks. He said that the government is forcing people to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
"If Vivekh had not taken the vaccine, he would have lived. During my election campaign I have slept on the streets, shared food with beggars and I haven’t contracted the virus. Masks shouldn't be made compulsory by the government,” he had said.
