Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot accused the Union Health Minister of making false statements about the corona vaccination and said that the government should take decisions that could bring relief to the general public. While tweeting one after the other, CM Ashok Gehlot said that
“I did not expect the Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan to make an untrue statement like ‘adequate vaccine is available in the states’. It is totally wrong for the Health Minister to accuse the states of miss management. Adhering to the guidelines, after working hard, the daily vaccination speed reached 5.81 lakh vaccines per day and reached the first position in the country.
The central government had allowed 10% vaccine malfunction but in Rajasthan the percentage of vaccine wastage is only 7%.
Rajasthan has the highest vaccination in the entire country. Initially, we were apprehensive about getting vaccine even to medical fertility, but we have encouraged people to get vaccinated by creating confidence within everyone and people have come forward in large numbers.
But the central government has failed to provide a regular supply of vaccines in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Delhi, Jharkhand, Uttarakhand and Assam, which has led to the closure of vaccination centers at many places in these states. There was no harm in assuming that the availability of vaccine in the country is low and the state governments should make a program of vaccination accordingly.
In his next tweet, CM Ashok Gehlot wrote that I also believe that instead of making false statements about this, the Central Government should have officially issued advisory saying that it will take some time for the vaccine to become available so that in future people will get confused The situation should not remain and people should have faith in the vaccine.
I hope that the Union Minister will work with the truth in front of common people instead of making false statements about corona infection and vaccination.
