Who’s responsible for vaccine wastage in Raj, asks Shekhawat


Union Minister and Jodhpur MP Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Friday attacked the Rajasthan government over the wastage of Covid vaccines in the desert state, asking who will take responsibility for the alleged wastage of 11.5 lakh vaccines doses in the state.

“The Prime Minister is repeatedly saying that wasting a dose of Covid vaccine is like denying a life-saving net to a person, but how can one improve those who have developed a habit of playing with people’s lives? So far, 11.5 lakh doses of corona vaccine have been wasted in Rajasthan,” Shekhawat claimed.

Stating that Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has held the Central government responsible for the vaccine crisis in the state, the Union Jal Shakti Minister said, “Now I question the state government as to who should be held responsible for this wastage of vaccine doses?”

This is more like a criminal act which can’t be ignored as it is a question of public lives, he added.

“It is Gehlot’s responsibility to bring to book the offenders, or else let us assume that the Chief Minister himself is responsible for this,” Shekhawat said.
