Amid a shortage of COVID-19 vaccine, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that there was no vaccine in Dehli.
While addressing the media persons, he said that there was no vaccine in Delhi. For 4 days, the vaccination centres for the 18-44 age group were shut and not just here but across India, several centres are shut, he said.
"Today, when we should have opened new centres, but now we are also shutting the existing ones, which is not good," Arvind Kejriwal said.
Meanwhile, Delhi CM also said that "As per my knowledge, no state govt has been able to procure a single dose of vaccine till now. Vaccine companies have denied speaking to the state governments."
"This is the time to unite and work for both State and Centre, and not work separately, he said, adding that "We need to work as Team India."
"It's the Centre's responsibility to provide the COVID-19 vaccine, not States and if we delay it more, don't know how many more lives will be lost," Delhi CM said.
He asked: "Why isn’t this country buying vaccines? We can’t leave it on states. Our country is at war against Covid-19. If Pakistan attacks India, will we leave states on their own? Will UP buy its own tanks or Delhi its own arms?"
Responding to the statement of Delhi CM on shortage of COVID-19 vaccine, Amit Malviya said that "you (Arvind Kejriwal) are responsible for it. You wanted the freedom to procure vaccine. You were given the option. You did nothing. Where are the 1.3 crore vaccines that the Delhi government ordered on April 26?"
"You are good for nothing. You couldn’t even manage beds, oxygen etc. People died," he said.
