Centre accepts Odisha Chief Minister’s suggestion on Covid vaccine

Bhubaneswar:19/4/21: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on April 17 had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggesting that Covid vaccines be made available outside the government supply chain in the open market so that citizens who can afford them can buy the COVID vaccines on their own.

Patnaik had further stated that this would reduce the burden of the government and allow it to focus on the vulnerable sections of society.

After two days, the Government of India today has finally agreed to the suggestion by Patnaik. The Government of India has now announced that vaccine manufacturers would supply 50% of their monthly doses to Government of India and the remaining 50% doses to States Governments and in the open market. This is what Odish Chief Minister had suggested in his letter two days back to the Prime Minister.

The Chief Minister with his visionary and statesmanship could foresee a very important and critical solution to the problem and due to his suggestion and solution, the Centre finally accepting it would help the people of India.
