False claims of Maharashtra, UP making record
According to the official spokesperson, other states of the country are far behind in vaccination than Uttar Pradesh with a population of 24 crores. In other states including West Bengal, Maharashtra, Delhi, where vaccination is going on at a slow pace despite having less population, UP is continuously making records.
He said that till now 09 crore 74 lakh vaccinations have been done in Maharashtra, which has half the population of UP, in which 06 crore 67 have been given the first dose, 03 crore have been given the second dose.
Apart from this, UP is far ahead than Maharashtra in vaccination. On the one hand, the Maharashtra government had to delete its tweet on social media after the false claim made about the second dose of vaccination, while the Yogi government in UP is fulfilling the resolve of what it said.
