2 min read

The Cowin portal was launched by the central government for vaccination, but now this portal has come under the purview of politics. Rahul Gandhi questioned this, after which the governments of Congress-ruled states have started preparing to launch their own separate app.

The Cowin portal was launched by the central government for Corona vaccination, but now this portal has come under the purview of politics. In fact, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi questioned this, after which the governments of Congress-ruled states are preparing to launch their own separate app. Chhattisgarh is at the forefront of this link.

Chhattisgarh is preparing this
According to sources, the Congress-ruled states are feeling uneasy with the Centre’s promotional strategy for the corona vaccine. Apart from this, questions are also being raised about the photo of PM Modi on the vaccine certificate. Significantly, during the assembly elections in Bengal, CM Mamata Banerjee also tried to surround the central government on this issue. However, states are refraining from speaking anything directly about the matter. It is being told that in the midst of all this, Chhattisgarh is preparing to launch its new state-level portal. The Government of Chhattisgarh believes that it will register itself separately. In this, the frontline worker will be marked separately.

CM of Maharashtra has also raised questions
Significantly, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has also raised questions about the state-level application. He also wrote a letter to PM Modi on this issue. Uddhav said that the registration of people between 18 and 45 years old can also cause the Covin portal to crash. In such a situation, he suggested creating a state-level app or portal.
States are giving such arguments.

Please tell that states say that they have to spend money on vaccination of people between 18 and 45 years of age. In such a case, their portal or app should be different for registration. Chhattisgarh believes that there is no objection to registration above 45 years through Cowin, but the state’s app cannot be imposed when the state is bearing the expenses of people below the age. As of now, the Center has not said anything in this matter. However, the centre officials say that the Cowin portal is very well designed. There is also a better system for security in this.
