Last week, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot raised a hue and cry over vaccine shortage in the state and said Rajasthan has insufficient stocks to carry on with the vaccination drive.
He also said that the Centre’s claim of no shortage of Covid-19 vaccines in the country is wrong and demanded that a status report on the availability of doses be made public.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan has become the second state after Maharashtra to administer more than 10 million doses of the vaccine.
