BJP MLA in UP Dal Bahadur Kori dies of post-COVID complications; it is now 6th MLA’s death up-to now in UP. Question arises if the Government cannot save his own MLA’s how Govt. saves common man.
New Delhi - Congress President Sonia Gandhi has once again questioned the policies of the Central Government on the Corona crisis. Sonia Gandhi has written a letter to Prime Minister Modi to protest against the new policy of Corona vaccine. In this letter, Sonia has demanded a change, calling the government's policy as arbitrary and discriminatory.
In the letter, Sonia said that the Center has allowed people between 18 and 45 years of age to take the vaccine, but has shunned the responsibility of providing free vaccine. At the same time, the serum institute has fixed the vaccine prices for hospitals and states separately, on which Sonia asked how the price of the same vaccine can be different for the two places.
The nation's goal must be to ensure that everyone over 18 years is given the vaccine, regardless of their economic circumstances. I urge you to intervene immediately & reverse the new Covid19 vaccination policy.— Congress (@INCIndia) April 22, 2021

The Congress leader wrote in the letter, "As a result of this policy, vaccine manufacturer Serum Institute of India announced different prices." According to the prices released by the Serum Institute, the central government will get one dose for Rs 150,Whereas,this rate is Rs 400 for state government and Rs 600 per dose for private hospitals.
Sonia said that this would force the citizens to pay a higher price and the state governments would also be financially hit. They have questioned the varying prices of the vaccine.
How will the government allow profiteering in this hour of crisis. Sonia Gandhi further said that the government should revisit the policy related to vaccine prices, because every person would agree to an equal price. Apart from this, every person above the age of 18 years should be vaccinated, irrespective of their economic status. The central government should move forward with this goal.
