Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted on Wednesday that 23 lakh people in the world had already received the COVID-19 vaccine and taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked when would India's turn come.

In a Twitter post, the Congress leader shared a 'COVID vaccinations' chart showing China ahead, followed by the United States, United Kingdom and Russia.

He tweeted that 23 lakh people have already received COVID-19 vaccinations and added, 'China, US, UK, Russia have started...India ka number kab ayegaa, Modi ji?'

India is yet to approve a vaccine for COVID-19. Pfizer, Bharat Biotech and Serum Institute of India have applied to the Drugs Controller General of India for a licence for emergency use authorisation of their vaccines in India.

Earlier, too, Rahul had said that the Modi government will have to define a vaccine distribution strategy to ensure that every Indian gets the COVID-19 vaccine.

He attached a media report with his tweet, saying that no cold chain logistic company in India has the capability to transport the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 to India which required a temperature of minus 70 degrees.
