Now the onus lies on the LG administration to plug all the loopholes in the way of uninterrupted vaccination drive in various areas of Jammu and Kashmir, PDF Chairman said adding that " In view of the heavy death toll due to fast-spreading pandemic in nook and corner of Jammu and Kashmir, it was time to act instead of resorting blame game, He said the government should ensure adequate quantity of vaccine and oxygen supply in both Jammu as well as Kashmir provinces without any discrimination to contain Covid-19 second wave.(KNS)
