New vaccine strategy is discrimination, says Rahul

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today attacked the Union government yet again, this time calling its vaccine strategy one of ‘discrimination, not distribution’.

Taking to Twitter, he said that there is no free vaccines for those between 18 to 45 years of age and neither there is a vaccine guarantee for weaker sections, in the Centre’s third vaccination drive.

“• No free vaccines for 18-45 yr olds. • Middlemen brought in without price controls. • No vaccine guarantee for weaker sections. GOI’s Vaccine Discrimination- Not Distribution- Strategy!,” he tweeted.

Rahul’s attack comes a day after the Centre announced the “liberalised and accelerated phase 3 strategy” of Covid-19 vaccination that will come into force on 1 May and will allow the entire adult population to get vaccinated.
