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 !
