Vaccine pricing row in Punjab; Is the Cong party in trouble?

Akali dal has accused the state government of procuring vaccines at a lower price and selling them to private hospitals at much higher rates. Akali has threatened to move to the court, but the Punjab government has not given any reaction. Sukhbir Singh Badal says that the government is getting the dose for Rs 400 each but is selling for Rs 1060 to the private hospitals, and further, the private hospitals are selling the same vaccines for Rs 1500-2000. So all the doses are diverted towards the private hospitals rather than to the government and the needy people. He says that the opposition is profiting during a pandemic. Watch Now!
