For last 9 days, AAP leaders on hunger strike in Odisha over power tariff

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Odisha is leading an indefinite strike since last 9 days over hike in power tariffs in the state.

Party's state head Nishikanta Mohapatra said despite Odisha being a power surplus state, the government has raised the price of electricity multiple times in the state in the last five months.

Calling electricity a basic right, Mohapatra urged the government to make power up to 200 units free in the state.

Incidentally, AAP does not have any legislators in Odisha, and the protest is being seen as its strategy to make base in the state.

Covid vaccine | 'Personal vasooli...': Govt on states seeking age limit removal

Union health minister Harsh Vardhan hit out at state governments seeking widening of the Covid-19 vaccine net amid a surge in infections. He accused governments of states like Maharashtra and Delhi of playing politics, instead of administering vaccines comprehensively among people currently eligible. He also dismissed claims of vaccine shortage by Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar. Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray had recently written to PM Narendra Modi seeking expansion of vaccine net to include those aged 25 and above in order to cover the 'young, working' population. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had a similar demand. The Aam Aadmi Party also questioned the central govt's move to export vaccines. Watch the full video for more.
