Questioning the vaccination policy of the central government, Congress has again demanded free vaccination to all the citizens of the country. The party said that the Corona crisis has also caused great economic loss to the people and in such a situation, the central government should give free vaccination, leaving the selfishness of 'opportunity in disaster'. Instead of imposing the burden of vaccination on the states, the Center should bear the entire cost.
Rahul said - time to show leadership
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that it is time for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to show leadership and he can do so by arranging for the vaccine and making it free to all. Leading the Congress' campaign on the Internet media, Rahul Gandhi said that he had written directly to the Prime Minister about this, saying that if India's vaccine strategy is not prepared, people will die many times, not once.
Corona wave will keep coming
Rahul also said that the wave of corona will keep coming again and again as the virus is changing its form. Criticizing the stand of the External Affairs Minister justifying sending them abroad under vaccine diplomacy instead of giving the vaccine to its citizens, Rahul said that in today's situation only three percent of our population has been vaccinated. The door of corona infection is open for 97 percent of people. In such a situation, it is necessary that the government should get the vaccine from wherever possible, vaccinate maximum people and stop making excuses.
how to vaccinate people
At the same time, former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said that some states do not have vaccines, some states do not have money. How will these states vaccinate their people when they have not received the amount of GST.
Priyanka said – Center has put the burden on the states
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that on an average 19 lakh people are getting the vaccine every day in the country. The lax policy of the central government has left vaccine distribution in limbo. All citizens hoped that a policy of free vaccine would be made for all, but due to the policy of the Center, the vaccine centers were locked. There are three vaccine prices in a country and only 3.4 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated. The vaccine policy is not only directionless, but the Center has also put its burden on the states.
Kharge and Azad also raised their voice
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that at the current pace of vaccination it will take many years to vaccinate the entire population and hence we demand to increase its speed. Senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who led the dissident leaders of the party, said that there is only one vaccine that can save the whole world and India from Corona. Therefore, it should be given free of cost to the countrymen.
