Dear PM: Major Opposition Parties Send Joint Letter With 8 Points


New Delhi:

Twelve major opposition parties have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, demanding that the Centre take immediate action to check the spread of Covid in the country which they called an “apocalyptic human tragedy”. The eight measures they suggested included free vaccines, a stop to the work on the Central Vista project, repeal of farm laws.

“We have repeatedly in the past drawn your attention, independently and jointly, to the various measures that are absolutely imperative for the Central government to undertake and implement. Unfortunately, your government has either ignored or refused all these suggestions. This only compounded the situation to reach such an apocalyptic human tragedy,” the letter read.

The list of do-s they sent included:

* Central procurement of vaccines from all available sources – global and domestic.
* Immediate free, universal mass vaccination campaign
* Compulsory licensing to expand domestic vaccine production
* Spending the Rs 35,000 crore budgetary allocation for vaccines
* Stopping the Central Vista construction and using the money for oxygen and vaccines
* Releasing all money held in the “unaccounted private trust fund”, PMCares to buy vaccines, oxygen and medical equipment
* Rs 6000 per month for the unemployed
* Free distribution of foodgrain to the needy
* Repeal of farm laws to protect farmers falling victim to Covid

The letter was signed by representatives of all key political parties except Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party and Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party.
