New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has recently made a statement that has made him a buzzman. In a recent statement, G Darsal said, "The Central Government is behaving stubbornly with regard to the Covid-19 vaccine distribution system". He said this during a press conference in New Delhi last Saturday. Meanwhile, he said, "The Central Government is sitting on the vaccine as Shani Dev. The State Government says that there is no vaccine for government hospitals, all given to private hospitals."

Not only that, he also accused the Central Government of "mismanagement" and asked how private hospitals are getting vaccines while states are being told that the vaccines are gone. He also said that 92 lakh people in the age group of 18-44 years in Delhi need 1.84 crore doses to get the vaccine while the Centre should provide only 4.5 lakh vaccines in April and 3.67 lakh in May. During further interaction, he said, "Now the Centre has informed us that only 5.5 lakh vaccines will be provided and that too after 10th June. There are 92 lakh youth in Delhi for whom we need 1.84 crore vaccine doses. But the Central Government informed us that Delhi will not get the vaccine before 10th June. Due to which we had to forcibly stop all vaccination centres of the youth.''

He also said, "In the GST meeting on Friday, he demanded that the covid vaccine be made tax free. Many States like Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Kerala, Maharashtra etc. Several BJP finance ministers strongly opposed it. Therefore, it could not be decided to make the vaccine tax free on Friday.''
