In letter to PM, Mamata flags vaccine, drug shortage

The Indian Express

Amid a shortage of Covid-19 vaccines and drugs, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure an adequate supply of vaccine doses, medicines and oxygen. Banerjee also called on Modi to resign over what she claimed was a botched response to the pandemic's second wave.

In a letter, the chief minister complained about an erratic supply of vaccine doses and asked Modi for 5.4 crore shots. Banerjee reminded the prime minister about a previous request to allow the state to purchase vaccines with its funds for a 'massive free [Covid-19] vaccination campaign'.
