The BJP at the moment got here again on the Congress’s P Chidambaram following his searing criticism of the “record” variety of vaccinations registered in India on Monday. Party chief JP Nadda at the moment mentioned the nation’s residents had continued to maneuver forward on the trail of Covid inoculation “much to the dislike” of the opposition celebration.
“India is not limping, but sprinting ahead powered by the strength of our citizens. After the record Monday, India has crossed 50 Lakh vaccinations on Tuesday and Wednesday, much to the dislike of the Congress Party,” Mr Nadda tweeted at the moment quoting the senior Congress chief’s take-down from yesterday. He was citing Tuesday’s vaccination determine for India — 54.22 lakh.
Up to 88.09 lakh COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered throughout the nation on Monday, the very best single-day protection until now. The feat was achieved on day one of many Centre’s new vaccination coverage roll-out, opening it up for all above 18 years of age.
Mr Chidambaram had, in his tweets yesterday, implied that this 88 lakh determine was artificially pumped up.
Hoard on Sunday, vaccinate on Monday, and return to limping on Tuesday.
That is the key behind the world “record” of vaccinations on a “single day”
I’m certain the “feat” will discover a place within the Guinness ebook of data!

Mr Chidambaram’s feedback dovetailed with allegations that some states, together with Madhya Pradesh, had hoarded vaccine doses for days to realize Monday’s file. Of the highest 10 states which had administered probably the most variety of doses, seven are dominated by the BJP.
Madhya Pradesh, as an illustration, set a nationwide file on Monday by administering 16,91,967 COVID-19 vaccines. Yet, a day earlier, it inoculated only 4,098 people, in response to a well being bulletin issued by the state authorities.
To meet the Centre’s goal of totally inoculating all adults by the tip of this 12 months, as much as 97 lakh vaccinations should be carried out per day. The present provide state of affairs raises questions on whether or not the goal might be met.
