Centre partial to Gujarat, UP : Prithviraj Chavan

Former Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has said that not only in distribution of vaccines, but even in allocation of N95 masks, PPE kits and ventilators, there was huge discrimination, as NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi preferred BJP-ruled Gujarat and UP. “From information tabled in Lok Sabha, it has been confirmed that there was lopsided and politically biased distribution of critical medical equipment, such as PPE kits, N95 masks and ventilators,’’ Chavan said. Chavan said Gujarat got 9,623 N95 masks per 1,000 Covid-19 patients, Maharashtra only 1,560, UP 3,916, more than twice of Maharashtra. Gujarat received 4,951 PPE kits, UP got 2,446 and Maharashtra 223 per 1,000. Gujarat got 13 ventilators, UP seven, and Maharashtra two per 1,000.
