After Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Bengal has also got into a dispute with the central government over the issue of corona vaccine. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has accused the government of not providing adequate number of corona vaccines, which the Center rejected. On Wednesday, Mamta attacked the government and said that the Center is not providing Corona vaccines to the state. In response to this, the central government has shared information related to the vaccine data and has said that more than 20 lakh vaccine doses are still left with the Bengal government.

The Union Health Ministry released the dose data of the vaccine, stating that a total of 52.90 lakh doses of covishield and covaxin have been supplied to Bengal. Out of this, 30.89 lakhs have been used by the state government during the vaccination campaign, while 22.01 lakh corona vaccine doses are still left. These figures are up to 17 March, eight o’clock in the morning.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee did not attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with various Chief Ministers. Alapam Bandhoopadhyay, the Chief Secretary of Bengal, was involved in this conversation with the PM on the issue of Corona. He raised the issue of vaccine during the meeting and said that Bengal needed more vaccines. It is being told that due to being busy in the election campaign, Mamata Banerjee could not attend this meeting with PM Modi.

On the other hand, Mamta Banerjee alleged in a rally held in Jhargram that she wants free Covid-19 vaccination of the people of the state but the Center is not allowing them to do so. He said that BJP had promised before the Bihar assembly elections that all the people of the state would be vaccinated free of cost but it did not fulfill this promise.

Rajasthan, Maharashtra have also raised the issue of lack of vaccine
West Bengal is not the only state which has raised the issue of vaccine deficiency in recent times. Earlier in Rajasthan and Maharashtra, Health Ministers have spoken about the lack of vaccines. However, the Central Government also stated at that time that both states have a sufficient number of vaccines. State Health Minister Dr. Raghu Sharma had said that we have only the vaccine left for three days. Subsequently, the Center replied that there is no shortage of vaccines in Rajasthan. Out of 37.61 lakh dosages sent, only 24.28 lakh dosages have been used.

More than 30 million people got vaccinated in the country
Till date, more than 3.64 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been given in the country. The government said that according to the interim data, 3,64,67,744 doses of covid-19 vaccine have been given till 7 pm on Wednesday evening. According to the figures, there are 75,47,958 health workers. 46,08,397 have also undergone a second dose in health workers. In addition, 76,63,647 personnel employed on the advance front have been vaccinated, of which 17,86,712 personnel have taken the second dose. Apart from these, 1,24,74,362 beneficiaries above 60 years of age and 23,86,568 people suffering from serious illness between 45 and 60 years of age have also been vaccinated with covid-19.
