‘Sending free vaccines to Pakistan, shortage of doses in Maharashtra’: Congress

The Congress in Maharashtra on Wednesday slammed the Centre for rejecting the demand to open COVID-19 vaccination for more age groups and accused it of adopting a non-cooperative attitude towards the state, which is the worst hit by the pandemic in the country. State Congress president Nana Patole said the Centre and the BJP will have to face serious consequences if adequate doses of COVID-19 vaccines are not provided to Maharashtra, which is in the grip of a raging second wave of the pandemic. He said due to the Centre's indifferent attitude, only three states have completed vaccination of 5 percent of their total population. Watch the full video for more details.
