Earlier this month, Singh had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, suggesting 5 steps to cope with the scenario. He requested PM Modi to make public particulars of the orders positioned by the Authorities for Covid vaccine doses and point out the technique for them to be distributed in a clear method.
The senior Congress chief additionally requested the Prime Minister to offer some flexibility to states to outline classes of frontline employees for vaccination even when they’re under 45 years of age, which is the present cut-off.
Union Well being Minister Harsh Vardhan then wrote a powerful letter to Singh, accusing Congress leaders and party-ruled states of “spreading falsehoods” and “fuelling vaccine hesitancy… taking part in with the lives of our countrymen.”
Nonetheless, hours after Vardhan’s letter, the Centre introduced that vaccination can be open for all residents over 18 years of age from Might 1 and requested vaccine producers to promote 50 per cent of the doses to the states and within the open market at a pre-declared value.
