Politics over Covid-19 vaccine

Kashmir Times. Dated: 10/27/2020 12:19:15 AM

Dear Editor,
It is quite uncharitable and highly condemnable that BJP has promised free vaccine to contain the killer pandemic for the people of Bihar in the BJP's election manifesto. lf the BJP-led Centre is interested in the welfare of all citizens of India, they should have announced free vaccine for every citizen of the country, not only for people of some specific states.
The vaccine is the right of every citizen and a commitment of the Central and state governments to all of us. Making it a poll promise with the view of luring votes is unethical, opportunistic, and simply wrong at so many levels, that it is surprising that the Election Commission of India has not stepped in to scrap it. How can taxpayers' money be given as an election bonanza only to a particular state? We are in the middle of a global pandemic, and the access to the Covid vaccine is our fundamental right whether we vote for a particular political party or not.
