BJP state president K Surendran criticized the vaccination process in Kerala at an all-party meeting. Surendran said at the all-party meeting that the vaccination process in Kerala was very slow and the state should be vigilant to speed up the process. Surendran also said that those concerned should refrain from spreading unnecessary fear in the name of Wakis.
Surendran said that other states are very active in booking vaccines and accused Kerala of being careless in this regard. The state should be ready to book the vaccine as soon as possible. Unnecessary criticism of the central government should be avoided. Surendran also demanded that more vaccination centres be opened to address delays in the vaccination process. Surendran added that Kerala should set an example to other states in this regard.
It was decided at the all-party meeting that there should be no complete lockdown in the state. The decision was taken at an all-party meeting convened by the Chief Minister. The all-party meeting also proposed to continue the restrictions over the weekend.
The decision was made to allow the shops to operate only till 7.30 pm. Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala had asked for an extension till 9 pm, but COVID assessed the state of emergency and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s proposal was later accepted by all. There will be no weekend restrictions on May 2, Election Day. The important decision taken by the political parties together was not to hold a joyous demonstration on the counting day. The joyful display is not prohibited by any law or order. It was suggested at the all-party meeting that the political leadership should give instructions to the rank and file.
The need for separate counters for vaccine distribution to those above 80 years of age was also raised at the meeting. It was also decided to impose strict restrictions on the spread of COVID in the tribal areas. Restrictions in districts may not be general. Depending on the extent of COVID spread, district administrations may make appropriate decisions. BJP state president K Surendran said at the all-party meeting that Kerala should not blame the Center for the wax.
