This Vaccine diplomacy , I get a feeling , modi had miscalculated the product manufacture , distribution , Demand - ON all three counts . For a population of 140 Cr , very likely we may need around 120 crore people to vaccinate meaning 240 crore doses . This need to be done in a urgent basis to beat the Epidemic . Only 2 companies given license in India ??? Can they manufacture 120 crore doses EACH. That too in 5 - 6 months time ? Ie 24 crore doses PM? Ie 1 CRORE doses per day ?? IMPOSSIBLE. They can’t manufacture even 1/ 10 of that !!! So what was Modi back up plan if he had one ? Minimum 10 to 12 companies must have been given license to manufacture vaccines plus import from any surplus country , whose population is less . Allocation per state to be done and monitor DAILY stock availability in each state . None of this was done . Probably he was busy with Elections .

Look at all his interviews, you will get to know what a real snake looks like in human form. It's sad to see how my Indian brothers and sisters gets manipulated so easily. And also research about the link between bill gates and SII. Look at the recent tweets of Bill Gates towards vaccine manufacture in India.

Now, I think he may got threaten and Indian media as well as some you tubers make it’s more worst when these type of thing bring in public it will be more panic and indian public got shot temper that will worst the country on these pandemic everyone is blaming now some of the minister asking modi for assistance. And it is not fault of only govt. I have seen people don’t follow protocol. They don’t wear mask and keep distance yes it hard but wherever we can do we have to do. As well as govt has to find out who was the one who threaten if it is then need to take action against him whether it’s BJP or Congress or any govt. and even opposition should stop playing politics on these matter. For one year when there was vaccine does all these minister where sleeping and having fun now they are blaming to modi it’s become very easy to blame everything to modi.

I honestly don't know if he is right or wrong. But one thing that's definitely wrong were his promises to provide vaccines to over 1.2 billion population. Heck he even promised to provide vaccines to the entire world but he failed to do so to Indians alone. I mean it's not like he wasn't aware of population or the requirement of Raw materials and workforce. Maybe if he wouldn't have promised so much the gov could have invested something on few other pharma companies instead of trusting on a single company. I maybe wrong but that's what I could think of.

How will he complete the task by siting in London. He wants to make more money at this time of crisis, by starting the vaccine production in different countries. On the other hand other companies abroad are also interested in selling the product, at high prices, but not producing it in India.

Adar Poonawala took 350 million dollars worth of interest free loan from the government of india to manufacture vaccines. Now he has escaped india with his family leaving us to suffer on our own. What's more he is now planning to invest in the UK (a country which plundered us for 200 years). You think he's a Samaritan who is here to help you and the poor?? No, he's just a selfish cowardly business man. That's all.

It's hitech and high quality production technology and errors cannot be made since human lives depend on it. I heard that Babha Ramdev has boasted last year that his Coronil has been approved. If so the BJP could have given the order to him. Further AstraZeneca is a British Patent Product and that is the reason that Adhar Poonawala has gone to London to decide on the delivery schedule. The production and delivery may be from India or Abroad since there are production plants across the Globe
