Amidst the corona epidemic, Union Minister Pratap Sarangi said that Covid-19 vaccine will be provided free of cost to all citizens of the country. Opposition parties accused the ruling NDA of using the epidemic for political gains after the BJP announced that the Kovid-19 vaccine was made available to the people of Bihar free of charge as the election campaign in Bihar continues. .
After addressing a gathering for the by-election to be held in Balasore on November 3, Sarangi told reporters that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that Kovid-19 vaccine will be made available to all people free of cost. Vaccination of each person will cost around 500 rupees.
Odisha minister asked for clarification from center
Earlier in the day, RP Swain, a minister in the Odisha government, attacked Union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and Pratap Sarangi, seeking answers regarding providing free of cost Kovid-19 vaccine. Sarangi made this claim in response to Odisha's Minister of Food Supply and Consumer Welfare RP Swain. Swain had sought clarification from the two Odisha ministers at the Center, Dharmendra Pradhan and Pratap Sarangi, on the BJP's stand on Odisha after the promise of free vaccine in Bihar?
Shiv Sena also targeted the government
On the other hand, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, while stressing the BJP's election promise of providing the Coronavirus vaccine free in Bihar, asked whether people from other states came from Bangladesh or Kazakhstan? Thackeray was addressing the Shiv Sena's annual Dussehra rally held at Savarkar Hall in Dadar. This time due to Corona virus prevention regulations, like every year, this event was not organized in Shivaji Park. Uddhav Thackeray said that you promise free vaccine of Covid-19 for people in Bihar, so have people from other states come from Bangladesh or Kazakhstan? People doing such things should be ashamed of themselves.
Manoj Tiwari hit back
On Uddhav Thackeray's statement, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari said that instead of saying such things, Uddhav ji does not free vaccine in Maharashtra. This is the case of the state, elections are going on in Bihar, Bihar government will make vaccine free in some Maharashtra. We demand that you bear the cost of the vaccine coming soon.
