West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote to PM Modi over vaccine shortage in the state

News Desk: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over vaccine shortage in the state. In her letter, she also accused the center of discriminating against West Bengal.

In her letter, she said

“The state at present is administering 4 lakh doses while the state is capable of administering 11 lakh doses per day. Yet, we are getting a much lower number of doses despite having a very high population density and a higher rate of urbanization.

I am sorry to say that the central government is providing a large number of vaccine doses to states like Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka which are BJP-ruled. I cannot remain a mute spectator to see Bengal being deprived.

Bengal has so far managed to administer 3.08 crore doses and the state has been the best in the country with respect to utilization of vaccines and has a minus 7% wastage rate”
