Punjab Health minister alleges less supply of vaccine by Central government

Chandigarh, 25/6 (Ao Bureau): Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu accused the central government of supplying less number of doses of Kovid-19 vaccines to the state as compared to the BJP-ruled states. The minister claimed that inadequate supply of vaccines has slowed down the pace of vaccination campaign in the state. He said that Punjab has the capacity to vaccinate three lakh people every day.

Balbir Singh Sidhu issued a statement saying that the vaccination data showed that the pace of vaccination campaign has increased manifold in BJP ruled states like Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. He said that 17 lakh doses were administered in Madhya Pradesh on June 21, whereas before June 20, an average of 1.75 lakh doses were given per day. “There is an overall nine-fold increase in this regard which highlights the disparity in the supply of vaccines to the states through the Government of India,” the minister alleged.
