Is it right to export vaccines, put countrymen at risk, asks Rahul GandhiPTI | New Delhi | Updated: 09-04-2021 11:16 IST | Created: 09-04-2021 11:16 IST
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday questioned the export of COVID-19 vaccines, and asked if it is right to do so and put the lives of countrymen in danger.
He said vaccine shortage is a very serious problem during Corona times and is not a celebration.
Gandhi also called upon the central government to help states without any bias and help provide them with more vaccines.
''Shortage of vaccine in view of the rise in Corona cases is a very serious problem and not a celebration,'' he said in a tweet in Hindi.
''Is it right to export the vaccine and put our countrymen at risk. The central government should help all states without any bias. We all have to fight this pandemic together and defeat it,'' he added.
Some states have been demanding more vaccines and the Congress is seeking the vaccine for all.
The Centre, however, has accused some states of doing politics on the issue of vaccines.
