Earlier, Congress President Sonia Gandhi accused the Modi government of discriminating against non-BJP ruled states. He said that the Congress Chief Ministers and the Congress’s associate Chief Ministers have written letters to the Prime Minister many times demanding the necessary goods, but the Central Government has remained completely silent. Many states do not have vaccines, ventilators and oxygen. At the same time it is seen that some states are being treated on a priority basis.

Meanwhile, Nawab Malik, a minister in the Maharashtra government, has claimed that 16 export companies had demanded Remedisvir. We were told that the central government has asked these companies not to supply in Maharashtra.

He claimed that companies have been warned that if they supply in Maharashtra, their license will be canceled. He said that in such a situation, the Maharashtra government has no option but to seize the Remedesvir stock from these exporter companies and give it to the needy people.

Significantly, Maharashtra seems to be the most affected by the corona. In Maharashtra, 63,729 new cases of corona were reported on the previous day. At the same time 398 people died.
