AAP continues assault on BJP-led centre, says govt concerned in Covid ‘vaccination rip-off’- The New Indian Specific
NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) continued its attack on the BJP-led central government over the shortage of Covid-19 vaccines in Delhi, saying the center was involved in a “vaccination fraud”. The AAP said that while vaccine doses don’t reach state government centers, private hospitals don’t have such a problem.
“There appears to be a fraud being committed under the guise of the vaccination program by the central government ruled by the BJP. While state-run vaccination centers are no longer functional, the privately run vaccination centers are running at full capacity and have lakhs and lakhs of vials, “said AAP spokesman Raghav Chadha.
In the past few days, the governments of the Center and Delhi have blamed the poor supply of vaccine doses. The problem started as soon as the vaccination process began for the 18-44 age group. The program had to be suspended on May 22nd due to lack of inventory for the category. The AAP government, which had plans to vaccinate the entire population of Delhi in three months, attacked the center daily for failing to supply enough vaccines.
BJP has accused the AAP government of policy and making unsubstantiated allegations on the matter. “Delhi is the greatest example of the vaccination centers set up by the Delhi government are all closed because the central government refuses to give us vaccines. However, the same government makes vaccines available to private hospitals.
Why is the central government creating an artificial shortage in the government sector? “Alleged Chadha. AAP MLA Atishi said people ages 18 to 44 are forced to spend money to get vaccinated: “On the one hand, states cannot vaccinate their youth, on the other hand, private hospitals are not lacking and they are charge Rs 900-1,350 for a kick. “
