Speaking on vaccine wastage reports, Chhattisgarh Health Minister TS Singh Deo on May 26 said, “The Central government has created a new portal and they are collecting data directly from vaccination centres and not from state government. There is delay from some vaccination centres in providing data which the Centre is calling vaccine wastage. They are calling it vaccine wastage without getting proper data. If Centre government does not believe us, it can send its own team for probe. Their intention is not right and these statements are politically motivated. Such things should not happen during COVID situation.” said TS Singh Deo.
