Hyderabad (Telangana): All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apologize to people who lost their loved ones due to a shortage of oxygen, beds and medicines.
Owaisi took to Twitter and said, “Prime Minister is scared to face parliament and the press. He could talk for hours about shamshans and Kabristans but never about hospitals. He must apologize to people who lost loved ones due to shortage of oxygen, beds, medicines, etc. he must be held accountable for this preventable sufferings.”
Further, Owaisi criticizing the Covid-19 vaccine policy of Modi led Central Government stated that the Centre should have allowed the foreign-made vaccine to be used in India.
Further, Owaisi puts a list of questions to Modi and asked, “Supreme court said that Prime Minister’s vaccine pricing policy prima facie violates “Right to Life”. Why was adequate vaccine orders not placed before time? Why did Modi continue with vaccine export with his photo on boxes when we knew there were not enough vaccines? Why did Prime Minister not allow foreign-made vaccines to be available in India? Why did you do not order compulsory licensing for vaccines to be made by other Indian Companies? Why are you still charging GST on vaccines? Why are you now trying to pass your disastrous vaccine policy to the state government?.”

The AIMIM chief recommended for a simplified procedure for the registration of vaccination and suggested decentralization of execution of vaccination operation to the states.
Owaisi demanded, “We need free and universal vaccination. Vaccine procurement can be centralized but the execution of vaccination operation can be decentralized fully to the states. Do away with cumbersome online registration requirements. Make vaccinations simple and easy for all.”
