BJP’s IT cell in-charge Amit Malviya reacted to the trolling on Twitter and said not just Bihar, the Centre will provide vaccines to all states at a nominal cost. He further added that it was up to the state to decide whether to give it for free or not since health is a state subject.

Bihar will go to polls in three phases with the first phase of elections set to be held on 28 October. The next two stages will take place on 3 and 7 November. The counting of votes will take place on 10 November.
