All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi said on Monday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement by the Center to provide free vaccines to states to vaccinate all people above 18 years of age came under the intervention of the Supreme Court. The result is known. Regarding Modi’s address, the Hyderabad MP said in one tweet after another that the 25 percent quota of private hospitals will continue so that the rich will get easier while the poor will have to wait for the availability of the vaccine.
Owaisi tweeted, “Thank you PM for another unnecessary speech, which could have been conveyed through a press release as well. The change regarding the vaccine policy seems to be the result of the order of the High Court. However, the states were blamed for the terrible vaccine policy. Modi failed to ensure vaccine supply.” He alleged that no money was spent till April to increase vaccine production and said that till July, the country could get only eight crore doses per month as against 60 crore doses.
In his address to the nation, the Prime Minister said that the central government would give free vaccines to the states from June 21 to immunize all people above the age of 18 years across the country and said that the supply of vaccines in the country would increase in the coming days. The Prime Minister said that the Center has decided to buy 75 percent of the doses, including 25 percent of the state’s quota, from vaccine manufacturers and give it to the state governments free of cost.
Seven companies in the country are working on vaccine production
He announced, “25 percent of the vaccines being made in the country can be taken directly by private sector hospitals, this system will continue.” Private hospitals will be able to charge a maximum service fee of Rs 150 for a single dose after the fixed price of the vaccine. The task of monitoring it will remain with the state governments. ” Modi called for increasing awareness among the people about the vaccine and said that the vaccine is like a protective shield to protect against the corona virus. The Prime Minister said that seven companies are working on vaccine production in the country against the corona virus and the trials of three more vaccines are in advance stage. The process of getting vaccines from companies from other countries has also been expedited.
PM asks those spreading rumors about vaccination to be cautious
Amid concerns raised by some experts about children being affected by the virus, Modi said that trials of two vaccines are underway in this direction. Modi said that research on the nasal spray vaccine is also going on and if successful, India’s vaccination campaign will gain momentum. Amidst the easing of restrictions in some states, including Maharashtra and Delhi, due to the reduction in COVID cases, Modi asked people not to be negligent. The Prime Minister also cautioned against people spreading rumors about vaccination and said that such people are playing with the lives of others and need to be cautious about them.
