  • State Health Minister Rajesh Tope had later rejected the claim, saying it was not correct.On Tuesday, state Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant in a Twitter post tagged the latest statistics released by the Centre and said, “@Prakash Javadekar ji, wastage of vaccines in Maharashtra is 0.22% and not 6% as per your lie. Modi government only exposed your lie.”Sawant further said the Maharashtra government was proud of the state’s health workers who kept wastage to minimum and still made the state no.1 in vaccination.

    “Really sad that Maharashtra BJP leaders like you keep humiliating and denigrating the state,” he tweeted while slamming Javadekar.”Another disturbing fact- Maharashtra has only 23547 vaccines left. How can we plan vaccination program if Modi government doesn’t supply adequate number of vaccines in time?” Sawant asked in the tweet.The Congress shares power in Maharashtra with the Shiv Sena and NCP.
