NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said vaccine shortage in the country is a serious issue and not a festival, in an apparent dig at PM Modi’s call to observe ‘Tika Utsav‘ from April 11 to 14.
Taking potshots at the BJP-led Centre, the former Congress president said, “Amid the growing cases of Covid-19, lack of vaccines is a serious issue and not a celebration.”
Blaming India’s vaccine export for the shortage, the Congress leader said the Centre should support all states without any bias.

“Is it right to export the vaccine and put our countrymen at risk. The central government should help all states without any bias. We all have to fight this pandemic together and defeat it,” he added.
“We all have to work towards defeating the pandemic,” he added.
His remarks came a day after several state governments complained that they were running short of Covid vaccines.
Earlier, Maharashtra health minister Rajesh Tope had said the state is in short supply of vaccines, adding its stocks will get over in just three days.
Vardhan, in his statement, continued his tirade against Maharashtra and said the “lackadaisical attitude” of the state government has singularly bogged down the entire country’s efforts against Covid.
