Mumbai (Maharashtra), April 8 — Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday slammed the state government for not curbing the black marketing of COVID-19 drug Remdesivir and said the government should procure the drug from states where the coronavirus situation is under control.
"Remdesivir injections are being sold in the state through black market. The government should get injections from the states where the situation is under control. It should also take strict action against all those who are involved in black marketing," Fadnavis said.
He added that the Maharashtra government should stop doing politics over vaccines.
"Uttar Pradesh has near double the population than Maharashtra and still they have got fewer vaccines than Maharashtra," he added.
