The Supreme Court said this about article 21
While hearing recently, the Supreme Court had asked the Central Government to reconsider its vaccine policy. The court had said that at first glance it seems that it damages the right to public health under Article 21 of the Constitution.
The Supreme Court said that vaccination is very important in the growing cases of the corona. What is the central government doing about the cost of the vaccine? What is this emergency, if not? During the hearing in the court, there was an objection to the different price of vaccine towards Rajasthan, Bengal, on which the court asked the government why the price is different.
What is article 21, this matter also arose in the High Court
