New Delhi : Every Indian must get the Coronavirus vaccine free of cost, whenever it is ready, said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Delhi CM urged it on Saturday after BJP promised the vaccine free of cost in its manifesto for the Bihar assembly elections, stirring up a political controversy.
" It is the right of every citizen in the country," Kejriwal said on the sidelines of inaugurating two flyovers here.
Earlier, the Aam Aadmi Party had said those who do not vote for the BJP must also get free vaccine.
More than 3.48 lakh corona infections have been reported in Delhi so far. Over 6,000 persons have died of Corona in Delhi alongside more than 26,000 active cases.
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said in Bihar's election manifesto every person in Bihar would be given free Covid-19 vaccine once it is ready.
Everybody in India must get Covid vaccine free, says Kejriwal.
