For instance, Meerut in UP, Hooghly and Howrah in West Bengal, Pune in Maharashtra, Alwar in Rajasthan and Panipat in Haryana received more doses than districts with high- er population in their respective states. In Meerut, a tier-2 city located 100 kms from Delhi and considered a part of the National Capital Region (NCR), 7.35 lakh doses were administered in a population of 34.43 lakh. However, there are at least 20 districts in UP with higher population that received lesser allocation. Take Sultanpur and Hardoi for example. The two districts have significantly larger population, but received only a third of the dose allocated to Meerut. stalin urges modi to stop works on Hydrocarbon E x p r e s s n e w s s e r v i c e @ Chennai A few days after the Union Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas invited bids for oil and gas fields in Vadatheru block in Pudukottai district, Chief Minister MK Stalin on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to drop the proposal. In another bid to protect federalism, Stalin also requested the Prime Minister to direct the Union government officials to consult the State government before bringing any area in the State for auctions in future for hydrocarbon exploration and extraction. The area identified for auction falls in the Cauvery basin and also in the Protected Agricultural Zone declared by the State government, under the Tamil Nadu Protected Agricultural Zone Development Act, 2020. This legislation prohibits any new exploration, drilling, and extraction of oil and natural gas and other similar hydrocarbons from the Protected Agriculture Zone, said Stalin in his letter to the Prime Minister. Given the pivotal role played by the region in the agrarian economy Stalin said the Cauvery , basin is the bedrock of the State’s food security . He added that this ecologically-fragile zone supports the livelihood of millions of farmers and farm workers. P3 Authorities say the situation is similar in Bulandshahar, another UP district adjoining Delhi. According to Bulandshahar district immunisation officer Dr Rohitash Yadav, the trend is most visible in vaccination centers at Khurja, Sikandarabad and Anupshahr. “Almost 15-20% beneficiaries in these three towns are actually from Delhi, Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddha Nagar. Owing to shortage of slots in their areas, they booked slots here,” he said. The status is similar in Al- war, another city falling within the NCR.

And Alwar is not the most populous of Rajasthan’s 33 districts. Another example of this disparity was recorded in Pune. The city received 33 lakh doses against a population of nearly 94 lakh, but bigger agglomerates like Thane (over 1.1 crore population) received only 19.21 lakh doses.
