Who'll get COVID-19 Vaccine first, Rahul Gandhi asks PM Modi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi a flurry of questions in connection to the anticipated vaccine for the COVID-19, raising issues like funding, timing, and priority of candidates. The former Congress President's queries on Twitter came in the backdrop of a spike in fresh COVID-19 cases from several states like Delhi and Gujarat in the past few days and also the expected arrival of a vaccine in the market as announced by Oxford University as well as drug-makers like Pfizer and Moderna.

His queries came a day after he criticized the central government's mishandling of the lockdown announced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping India since January.
