Mamata Banerjee has already spoken out about the Centre’s vaccine policy He also wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking why the state government should buy vaccines at a higher price than the Center. The chief minister had written to the prime minister on February 24 demanding that the state government buy vaccines directly and vaccinate people for free. Although he complained, he did not receive a reply to the letter However, a few days ago, the central government decided that all states would be able to buy vaccines directly from vaccine manufacturers. Private hospitals will also be able to buy the vaccine However, Mamata Banerjee wrote a letter to the Prime Minister protesting the inequality in vaccine prices. There, he demanded that every Indian should get a free vaccine Its cost is borne by the center or the state
However, the Chief Minister further said that the state government has set aside Rs 100 crore for the purchase of vaccines. After Mamata Banerjee promised a vaccine, the BJP tried to make the same promise before the last two rounds of voting.
