We will keep the issue before the chief minister,” he said. “The vaccine programme is not concerned with my Health Department and is under the control of Chief Secretary and Vikas Garg, who is the state’s nodal officer for the vaccination drive,” said Sidhu. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar slammed Punjab government over vaccine management. Watch the full video for more details.
