Reliance, HCL announces vaccination for employees, Chidambaram questions quantity of COVID vaccine production in India

New India: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday took to Twitter to raise questions about the actual quantity of COVID vaccine produced by the two domestic manufacturers- Bharat Biotech and the Serum Institute- in India.

The Congress leader welcomed the announcement by corporate, including Reliance Group and HCL, to vaccinate their employees, their families, and business partners, but questioned where they will procure the vaccine supply from. He said, “State governments are not able to get supplies from any manufacturer — domestic or foreign. So, from where do the corporates expect to get their supplies?”

Chidambaram added, “The proper thing to do is direct a CAG driven full-scope audit of capacity, production, despatch, supply and customers’ lists of the two domestic manufacturers.”
