Congress President Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attacked the Center over the lack of the Corona vaccine. He said that the government could have bought the vaccine for everyone with the tax money, but it did not. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Friday that a lot could have been done. During the Corona epidemic, the corona vaccine could have been arranged for everyone through the money received from the tax imposed on petrol and diesel, but nothing was done.
Priyanka also gave an account of the income of the government from the tax imposed on fuel by tweeting with the hashtag BJPLootingIndia.

718 जिलों में ऑक्सीजन प्लांट
29 राज्यों में एम्स अस्पताल
25 करोड़ गरीबों को 6000 रू की मदद
मगर मिला कुछ भी नहीं।#BJPLootingIndia
