Congress MP Abhishek Singhvi Lauds Odisha Govt’s COVID Vaccination Initiative

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Abhisek Singhvi has lauded the Odisha Government’s vaccination initiatives and slammed the Modi Government saying that the Centre should have done it in October last year.

In order to ensure complete and universal vaccination coverage of the people of Odisha, the Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik-led government has decided to procure coronavirus vaccines from major national and international vaccination firms. It has decided to float global tender for vaccine procurement.

The State Cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, on Monday approved a proposal in this regard.

This will help Odisha cover vulnerable population thereby saving lives and restoring the livelihoods of people, the Chief Minister said.

Vaccination is the key to protect citizens from future waves of COVID infections and save precious lives. Vaccines will be procured in the shortest possible time to bring back normalcy in the State, he added.

Praising the Odisha Government’s initiatives, Abhisek Singhvi said that the Central Government should have taken such initiatives in October 2020 instead of exporting vaccines as vaccinemaitri to bcome vishvaguru.
