The Delhi High Court has made a sharp remark about the lack of vaccine in the country. The High Court said that Kovid-19 has not spared a single family and even then the Central Government officials are living in their ‘ivory towers’ oblivious to the ground reality. With the production of Sputnik V vaccines in India, the country is getting an opportunity to overcome the shortage of vaccines. Expressing displeasure with the Center for dealing with the situation of the epidemic, the Delhi High Court said, ‘May God save this country. Panasonic Biotech’s partnership with the Russian Direct Investment Fund for the production of Sputnik V vaccine should be seen as an opportunity to use it here and in such cases get instructions from higher authorities within 30 minutes. ‘
HC said, ‘Even when the government has an opportunity to get the dose of millions of vaccines, no one is thinking even when the government should adopt it as an opportunity, otherwise death will continue.’ The court said that every day all the courts are expressing displeasure with you and even then you are not awake. Which bureaucrat is instructing you? Is he not aware of the situation? God save the country. The court said, ‘Is your officer not able to see such a large number of deaths in the country. There is also a shortage of vaccines. Your client is not aware of the situation.
Criticizing the Centre’s stand on the issue, the court said, “You have such a shortage of vaccines and you are not paying attention to it. This may be an opportunity for you.” Do not be so negative. It is like burning fire and no one is bothered. The court made these comments while hearing on the petition of Panacea Biotech of Delhi. Actually, Panacea has sought to amend the order in a 2020 Arbitration Award case. The company has sought the release of the arbitrator award in its new application, saying it needs funding as soon as possible in the larger interest of humanity as it already produces testing batches of Covid Vaccine Sputnik V in collaboration with RDIF Has been done and their production process has to be done further. The High Court has issued a notice to the Center and sought a response by 31 May.
