Thiruvananthapuram : The Modi government should become willing to sincerely implement countrywide distribution of vaccines, said CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury. Irrational vaccine policy has cost thousands of lives. Their families should be paid compensations.
The centre should make known details of its new plan before rolling back of the old nationwide mitigation policy. The country has paid heavy price for government’s failure in Covid response. The Modi govt should own up that failure instead of shifting the blame on non-BJP states.
Even before the Supreme Court ruling, the Kerala Chief Minister and Opposition parties leaders wrote to the Prime Minister seeking for a reexamination of the vaccine policy. All Indians have the right to receive vaccine. Government’s funds are public money. Vaccination is not anyone’s charity, Yechury wrote in his post.
