Centralise vaccine purchase, decentralise distribution: Rahul


New Delhi, May 14 (IANS): Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday slammed the central government's vaccine policy, saying it is compounding problems and demanded that the vaccine purchase should be centralised and distribution decentralised.

"Government of India's vaccine policy is compounding the problem. Vaccine purchase should be centralised and distribution decentralised. India cannot afford this," he said on Twitter.

The Congress has been demanding free vaccination for all and has criticised the government's vaccine policy, saying it is discriminatory.

His remarks came after several states red flagged the shortage of Covid-19 vaccines.

On Friday, India recorded 3.43 lakh fresh cases of Covid with 4,000 deaths in the last 24 hours.

    You’re not a good communicator is what BJP complaints because you don’t know the ground realities . Modi and team can only understand the suggestions given on exclusive skills they have like : Chai , Pakoras , Chowkidari , Toppling Non-BJP government at the cost of usurping private banks, installing BJP best party worked as governors to share the load of destabilising non-BJP government and most of them all production of Andh Bhakts, while these are the only deliverables from 2014 and Papps you’re definitely talking Italian with a Chowdar of Adani and Ambani

    In the present situation it is absolutely essential that all people should get free vaccine.All western countries have free vaccines since the vaccines came in except India.How can the poor daily wage earners can afford this vaccine. Rahulji understands the suffering of poor people & the health crisis we have with no solution in the next several months. God bless.
