Chidambaram attacks Modi government, says it is unfortunate not to have a price for corona vaccine

New Delhi: Corona vaccine maker Serum Institute of India (SII) has been in a frenzy over the price of vaccines. Congress attacked the Central government saying it was a poor move to fix the same price of the vaccine across the country. Earlier, Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel have also demanded a similar price.

The Serum Institute of India had said two days ago on Wednesday that the corona vaccine would cost Rs 400 for state governments, while for private hospitals it would cost 600 per dose. In a tweet, veteran Congress leader and former Union minister P Chidambaram hit out at the government saying it is discriminatory for the Central government to fix several prices for the vaccine, state governments should come together to oppose the decision.

For this, the state governments should jointly constitute a committee and unanimously decide to fix a price for vaccine manufacturers. He said a decision by the state governments together would force vaccine manufacturers to keep a uniform price.
