Raipur: Janta Congress Chhattisgarh State President Amit Jogi has moved the High Court challenging the decision of the Chhattisgarh government decision for reservation in Covid-19 vaccination.
Jogi has argued in the petition that the Chhattisgarh government's decision to introduce reservation in vaccination is unconstitutional and unethical as well as unscientific. Vaccine doses should be applied first to people who are more likely to be infected, regardless of class or race. This decision can only be taken by expert doctors and not non-expert leaders sitting in air-conditioned rooms, he said.
In the petition, Jogi stated that under the Constitution of India, no ruler can be empowered to decide who lives and who dies. The basis of vaccination should be scientific rather than reservation and there is only one basis of treatment which is called proneto in the language of medicine.
Besides, Jogi also stated in the petition that in an all-party meeting convened by the Chhattisgarh government on April 15, he had given suggestions for the prevention, control and treatment of corona in writing. In this, he urged the regime that 'those with pre-disease condition should be vaccinated first on the basis of proneto in the 18-45 age group.
Jogi alleged that the Chhattisgarh government is pursuing an immunization campaign in an arbitrary manner keeping in view the prevailing scientific principles, which may have to repay the real needy from their lives. Amit has demanded a high-priority hearing on the matter from the High Court. Jogi also shared information regarding the first hearing of case on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.
