New Delhi, April 08:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said states should hold a ‘Tika Utsav’ (vaccine festival) from April 11 to April 14 to ensure optimum utilisation of Covid-19vaccination capability. Speaking at a virtual review meeting with chief ministers over the nationwide surge in infection, the PM said as many eligible people as possible should be vaccinated in all states as part of this festival.

Talking about vaccine distribution, he said we needed to prioritise. “We need to prioritise (vaccine distribution) with what we have. We won’t get the result by keeping vaccines in one state. It is not right to think in this way. We have to manage by thinking about the country,” he said.
