Govt of India’s vaccine policy is compounding the problem.Rahul gandhi – former congress president
Vaccine purchase should be centralised and distribution decentralised.
India cannot afford this.
P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister :
- The government’s affidavit in the SC proves that it wants to protect the monopoly of the two Indian companies manufacturing Covid vaccines.
- It also proves that the government does not care about the supply-demand gap.
- The poor have to wait indefinitely to get themselves vaccinated.
- Another piece of evidence that the government is anti-poor and pro-corporate: its unwillingness to fix a uniform price for vaccines. The two companies are raking in super profits.
Pinarayi Vijayan – CM, Kerala:
Lockdown is extended till 23 May.
Triple lockdown in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Thrissur, Malappuram.

I salute our docs, engineers and workers who worked round the clock on war footing and constructed these 500 ICU beds in just 15 days at Ramlila maidan opp LNJP hospital.Arvind Kejriwal – Chief Minister, Delhi
250 ICU beds start tomorrow and 250 in next two days.
Rajasthan now has the 4th highest active cases at 2.11 lac, which is 5.72% of the total active cases of the country.
The present oxygen allocation is 435 MT including 125 MT of ASU.
The situation is extremely fragile as there are also constraints in lifting 100 MT of allocated oxygen from Burnpur and Kalinganagar in the East and this quota has not been adequately utilised by us despite best efforts.
I sincerely request to revise the allotment of oxygen from Jamnagar and Hazira immediately as active cases are going down in many states and also allotment of more imported oxygen at the earliest.
DK Shivakumar – President, Karnataka Congress:
Since Modi & Yediyurappa Govts have failed to vaccinate most of Karnataka months after vaccine manufacturing began, INC Karnataka has decided we are ready to vaccinate people ourselves. We need immediate permission to procure vaccines.
INCKarnataka wants to show Modi-Yediyurappa that it is possible to quickly vaccinate the masses.
We just need permission to procure & to use MLA/MLC development funds to buy vaccines. Since they can’t do it, they should let us do it.
We have Rs.100 cr plan to begin with: 90 cr from Congress MLA/MLC funds & 10 cr as per INC Karnataka’s commitment from party funds.
More shall be raised from public donations & by tying up with hospitals & clinics to administer jabs.
Currently, the rules allow only state governments, hospitals and industries to procure vaccines in India.
In the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat, Karnataka Congress should be allowed to procure directly from vaccine makers as well.
Congress Party would like permission to directly approach vaccine makers across the world and procure them.
We will show that we can do the vaccination drive better and faster than Modi and Yediyurappa together are able to.
The Karnataka government is only now floating global tenders with regard to local manufacturing.
Had these initiatives been taken months ago, so many lives would have been saved!
INC Karnataka appeals to PM Narendra Modi and CM BS Yediyurappa not to let politics come in the way & to allow us to procure vaccines directly, by letting us use MLA/MLC funds for it, because vaccination at speed is needed to save lives.
Dr Ashwathnarayan – Dy CM, Karnataka:
At the outset, DK Shivakumar avare, did you check with your Party President before making your grandiose claim?
Last I checked, your leader thinks that Centre should procure all vaccines.
Do you disagree & think her opinion is ill-founded? Or has INC changed its position again?
At a time when our nation is facing an unprecedented crisis & is united in its fight against COVID, it is saddening to see you & INC indulge in creating false panic & offering contradicting stands for political benefits instead of directing energies against a common enemy.
Under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi, over 17 cr Indians have received vaccine. No country in the world has vaccinated its citizens at the scale and pace as in India. As of 11 May, Karnataka under the leadership of CM Shri BS Yediyurappa has vaccinated over 1 Cr people.
Govt of Karnataka is committed to ensure the safety and security of every Kannadiga. We have formulated a scientific and evidence-based policy to combat the COVID19 pandemic.
Karnataka is the first state in the country to offer doorstep delivery of Oxygen Concentrators to help maintain oxygen saturation levels of home isolation patients. At a time when country was facing shortage of ICUs, our Govt created modular ICUs.
It is saddening, although not unexpected, to see you & INC leaders indulging in political theatrics when our state is facing such challenging times. DK Shivakumar avare, politics can wait, saving the lives of Kannadigas is of paramount importance.
The poor vaccination record of Congress Govt’s across various states is testimony enough to show the hollowness of your claim. DK Shivakumar avare, why have you not helped Congress Govts with your insights? Or is your claim borne out of a desire to seek cheap publicity?
At a time when the state of Karnataka and its people are mounting a brave fight against COVID19, I wish that my esteemed INC colleague DK Shivakumar will for once indulge in constructive politics based on public interest. Karnataka is watching you!

Home Minister Sri Amit Shah called me to enquire about grenade blast at Tingrai Market in Tinsukia District.Himanta Biswa Sarma – Chief Minister, Assam
He condoled death of two civilians.
I apprised HM on the matter and informed that Assam Police has been asked to take stern measures against perpetrators & nab them immediately.
Why is the Delhi Police questioning @IYC President for helping those in need? Is this the reward Youth Congress deserves for its exemplary initiative to help citizens during the pandemic? Why are Modi govt’s priorities always skewed?….
Delhi Crime Branch, pursuant to a court order, is questioning activists across parties, who were arranging help for people in need, on the source of supplies when citizens, even some hospitals were struggling. Only those with a history of hoarding and bootlegging are complaining.
