Centralise vaccine purchase, decentralise distribution: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has hit out at the government’s vaccine policy, saying it is compounding problems and demanded that the vaccine purchase should be centralised and distribution decentralised.

“Government of India’s vaccine policy is compounding the problem. Vaccine purchase should be centralised and distribution decentralised. India cannot afford this,” he tweeted.

The Congress has been demanding free vaccination for all and has criticised the government’s vaccine policy, saying it is discriminatory.

The former Congress chief’s remarks came after several States red flagged the shortage of Covid-19 vaccines.
