The last time, we had brought active COVID cases from 10 lakh to 1.25 lakh. The strategy that made it possible is equally effective even today: PM Narendra Modi

PM Shri Narendra Modi reviews COVID-19 situation and vaccination progress with Chief Ministers. Speech excerpts via BJP India:

The country has already crossed the time of peak of the first wave. The growth rate this time is faster than the first wave.

People have turned casual compared to the last time. Administration, too, seems to be lazy.

Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and other states have crossed the peak of first wave.

Some other states are also moving towards this quickly. It is a worrying and serious concern for all of us.

All of you must use the experiences from the first wave to combat the second wave. Today, we have all the resources and thus, it is a challenge for our governance. We must focus on micro-containment zones.

The last time, we had brought active COVID cases from 10 lakh to 1.25 lakh. The strategy that made it possible is equally effective even today.

Our experience says ‘Test, track and treat’ is the mantra to go forward. We must also focus on COVID appropriate behaviour and COVID management.

We have to increase testing a lot. We must bring down positive rate below 5%. Our target is to do 70% RT-PCR tests.

Our target should be to test at least 30 contacts in 72 hours per COVID positive patient. The borders of containment zones should be particular and not vague.

We have crossed the mark of vaccinating 40 lakh people in one day. Criteria set by the world’s most developed nations is no different to the ones set by India.

11th April is the birth anniversary of Jyotiba Phule and 14th is the birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Ambedkar. Can we do a mass vaccination programme from 11-14th April for the eligible people with zero wastage and use our resources optimally?

Maharashtra and Rajasthan are 2 of the top 3 States based on allocation of COVID19 Vaccine doses: Dr Harsh Vardhan

Let’s put an end to fear mongering now!

COVID19Vaccine doses:

Total administered: 9 cr+

In stock/nearing delivery to states: 4.3 cr+

Where does question of shortages arise?

Hue & cry by certain States about partisanship by the Union Govt is just a farce, an attempt to hide their own incompetence.

Maharashtra and Rajasthan are 2 of the top 3 States based on allocation of COVID19 Vaccine doses.

Both are non-BJP governed States.

We’re continuously monitoring & enhancing supply

Only 3 states have received more than 1 crore vaccine supply: Devendra Fadnavis

Devendra Fadnavis – Former CM, Maharashtra :

Only 3 states have received more than 1 crore vaccine supply : Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan. Gujarat & Rajasthan has equal population. Rajasthan has Congress Govt in power.

Vaccine supply is not on the basis of population but purely based on State’s performance of execution of vaccination process.

Maharashtra received 1.06 crore vaccines as mentioned in official State Govt tweet from DGIPR on 6thApril.

91 lakh vaccines got used; means 15lakh still left with GoM.

So why are vaccination centres deliberately shut down today & why peltering of false news?

Whichever states have requested for more vaccine supplies or has pendency from alloted quota, such supply is in pipleline and Maharashtra to receive another 19 lakh vaccines between 9th to 12th April.

Uttar Pradesh is the largest State & received 92 lakh vaccines. They have used 83 lakh doses and 9 lakh are remaining with them.

Even Haryana has not received much vaccine in the first round, but getting it now.

Shri Sharad Pawar ji spoke to Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan ji who assured him of all the assistance to GoM.

I also discussed with Union Health Minister. He assured that there was never ever any biased approach towards Maharashtra & supplies are smooth.

Since day 1 of Covid19 Pandemic, the Government of India, taking all states on board, has taken measures unitedly and in that too Maharashtra has been given maximum assistance.

Even today, GoI under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi ji, is providing all support to GoM to serve better, the people of Maharashtra.

Ventilators – NOT available!
Remdesivir – NOT available!
Oxygenated beds – NOT available!
Simple bed occupancy – NOT available!

BUT… Vaccines are available & more will come too

Moreover, due lack of even basic facilities, sufferings of the people are on a rise day by day. Does the Maharashtra CM and Ministers even care to pay attention to this?

Undoubtedly, COVID19 & vaccination are important issues for our State. But since there is constant criticism on mis-governance of MVA & various exposes in courts lately, its an Absolute Shame that vaccination politics is being played to divert people’s attention!

It is my earnest request to MVA to STOP such dirty politics and focus on improving the health of our Maharashtra !

The Centre is targeting Maharashtra on the spread of COVID-19 ignoring hard facts: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

The Centre is targeting Maharashtra on the spread of COVID-19 ignoring hard facts

Maharashtra has vaccinated 80 per cent of healthcare workers. Nearly 20 states are behind Maharashtra

Maharashtra has vaccinated 73 per cent of frontline workers. Only 5 states have done better

In vaccinating senior citizens, Maharashtra stands fifth in the country

These facts are from the Union Health Minister’s statement!

The Union Health Minister should stand before a mirror and ask the question if the Centre has supplied enough vaccine doses to Maharashtra

The Centre has made a complete mess of the vaccination programme including the non-supply of sufficient doses of vaccines

Such pervasive corruption shows the character of the ruling alliance in Maharashtra.

Took my first shot of COVID19 vaccine: CM, Sarbananda Sonowal

Took my first shot of COVID19 vaccine at GMCH.

Vaccines are safe and will help us defeat this pandemic.

I urge all eligible persons of the state to get vaccinated and continue following safety precautions.

The little ones greeted me with their precious smiles.. : Conrad Sangma

On my visit to South Garo Hills, I stopped at All Saints School in Rongara where the little ones greeted me with their precious smiles.

A light-hearted moment from all the seriousness of the election campaign and a reminder to be child-like. God bless them.
