Amid rising criticism of the Centre's Covid vaccination drive, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, on Friday, said India will vaccinate its entire population by the end of this year.

Javadekar hit out at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, who hours earlier, had pointed out that less than 3 per cent of India's population had received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

India placed its first order for Covid-19 vaccines only in January this year, while most nations had been placing orders since mid-2020.
