Jaipur: Vaccination drive is being launched to prevent the infection of corona epidemic. But, in many places, there are reports of wastage of vaccine. Rajasthan leads the race for vaccine wastage. According to media reports, a total of 11.5 lakh (about 7 per cent) vaccine doses have been wasted in Congress-ruled Rajasthan.
Churu district has the highest vaccine loss of 39.7 percent. Hanumangarh ranks second with 24.60 per cent, while 17.13 percent vaccine has been wasted in Bharatpur. The district ranks third in terms of vaccine wastage. On the other hand, quota is at the fourth position by destroying 16.71 per cent vaccine. Questioning the negligence of rajasthan's Ashok Gehlot government over the wastage of vaccine, Union Minister and Jodhpur MP Gajendra Singh Shekhawat slammed CM Gehlot and said it has reversed the corona crisis in the state instead of receding.
Shekhawat said, "PM Modi has been repeatedly saying that wasting a dose of covid vaccine is like depriving a person of life cover, but how will he improve those who have become used to playing with people's lives?" He questioned the state government as to who should be held responsible for the waste of corona vaccine. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been constantly questioning the shortage of corona vaccine but Rahul is silent on the wastage of vaccine in the state ruled by his own party.
