The other day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to the nation announced free vaccination to everyone above eighteen years of age starting from June 21st. This has been a flipflop from the Center’s earlier strategy of giving vaccines for free only for the 45+ age group.
The center has come under severe criticism from the states and the Supreme Court for this strategy and Modi had to backstep. Meanwhile, on the day of the announcement, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was scheduled to meet the Union Ministers in Delhi.
If the announcement has come after the meeting, YSR Congress social media teams would have gone overdrive claiming credit for the decision. But after failing to get the appointment of Home Minister Amit Shah, Jagan had to cancel the Delhi Trip. Thus missed the chance.
Going forward, all procurement of the vaccines will be done by the Government of India and they will be supplied free for the state. The Union Government has earmarked 35,000 Crore Rupees for the vaccination drive.Don't MissModi Needs Jagan's Approval Even For That?A section of media supporting YSR Congress seems to be hitting new highs in sycophancy....Don't MissWhat Did Modi Offer Jagan For This Favor?Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy toured the National Capital for two days....Don't MissKCR Follows Jagan ModelIt looks like the Chief Ministers of both the Telugu states are competing with each...Don't MissArdha Shathabdham Review - A Crude Caste DramaBOTTOM LINE A Crude Caste Drama OUR RATING 2/5 PLATFORM Aha Video What Is the...Don't MissRRR: NTR and Ram Charan Fans Latest ArgumentAs they say, an idle man's brain is a devil's workshop.
