Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to initially send a few samples of the Covid-19 vaccine to the states to determine if there are any side effects and then administer to the rest.

The chief minister informed Modi that the state government was ready to distribute and administer the vaccine on a priority basis and has prepared an action plan. He instructed officials to prepare for the cold chain. He reminded that India has various regions with different weather conditions.

“Corona virus did not affect the country in a uniform manner. Vaccine, too, may lead to different side effects in different regions. Hence, initially send a batch of vaccine doses to the states which can be administered to some people.

Let us assess the situation after administering the vaccine on these people and then administer it to the rest,” said Rao.

Apart from the CM, senior officials, vice-chancellor of health university as well as members of Covid-19 experts’ committee attended the video conference.

Later the chief minister held a meeting with officials and instructed them to prepare the necessary infrastructure for the vaccine cold chain. Committees should be formed at the state, district and block level to roll out vaccination programme against Covid-19.

The vaccine should be first administered to frontline workers, citizens about 60 years of age and those with acute health issues.

Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy held a meeting with officials after the video conference with PM Modi.

He directed officials to focus on infrastructure facilities for storing the vaccine at the optimum temperature and transportation to remote areas. Officials were asked to come up with an action plan for distribution of the vaccine.

The PM has discussed about the vaccination, including identifying those to be administered first, priorities, policies to be followed at the field level and procedures of vaccine distribution.

Iqbal Khan: OTT self-censorship shouldn’t come at cost of creative freedom

Published

on

Actor Iqbal Khan says OTT platforms create space for stories and experimentation. While content creators should be responsible, self-censorship should not limit storytelling.

Iqbal, who was last seen in the web series “Crackdown”, is currently shooting an upcoming series in the scenic hill town.

“OTT has taken stories to mobiles and laptops, and can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere. I believe that over a period of time synergies will work out between these platforms. Content can be customised for the platforms. As the authorities are mulling self-censorship on OTT platforms, cognisance will be taken of the nature of content being released by responsible content creators. I believe that such censorship would not come at the cost of creative freedom.”

Starting his career with music videos, Iqbal worked in several television serials before he made his digital debut with the show “The Bull Of Dalal Street” earlier this year. This was followed by “Crackdown”.

“The initial success of OTT prompted me to go for more. I believe that in a short period of time OTT platforms have been able to blur the boundaries of language and geography. Now, good content in any language can be viewed and enjoyed in any part of the world. There are so many stories being told online that good actors can explore much more compared to television or films. However, I always choose a project based on content, irrespective of the exhibition platform or the language,” Iqbal mentioned.
