The address comes at a time when political leaders from different states have criticised government’s vaccination policy. Earlier on Monday, Congress’ Rahul Gandhi tweeted, attacking the Centre saying, “#NoVaccineNoVacancy Only Blue ticks,” hinting at the spat between Twitter and the Centre while the many states have complained of vaccine shortage. In an earlier tweet, Rahul had questioned Centre’s ‘priorities’ saying (roughly translated from Hindi),” Modi government is fighting for blue tick, If we want Covid-19 vaccine, we have to become self-reliant.”

Many expect PM Modi will also talk about the way ahead for states, as Delhi, Tamil Nadu and other states have begun easing Covid restrictions and lockdowns.

The country reported 2427 deaths according to the statistics by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, on Monday (June 7).
