PM’s meet on Covid19: State govts should get vaccines at similar rates as Central govt, says CM Kejriwal to PM Modi

PM’s meet on Covid19: Government Sources accused Delhi Chief Minsiter Arvind Kejriwal for playing politics during PM-CM conference.

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday appealed PM Modi to make the COVID19 vaccine available to the state at the same price as the Centre.

He also urged the Prime Minister to ask states to not block oxygen supply to the national capital.

“Who do I call if hospitals run out of oxygen? If states are blocking oxygen supply to Delhi, who do I call?,” said Arvind Kejriwal to PM Modi.

“There’s a huge shortage of oxygen in Delhi. Will people of Delhi not get oxygen if there is no oxygen-producing plant here? Please suggest whom should I speak to in Central Govt when an oxygen tanker destined for Delhi is stopped in another state?” he said.

“I request with folded hands that PM gives direction to CMs to ensure smooth movement of oxygen tankers coming to Delhi.”
