Hyderabad, August 4: Telangana Pradesh congress commitee secretary Bandulal expressed deep concern over reports of State Government setting up five new LPG-based crematoria in Hyderabad in view of rising number of Coronavirus cases in the twin cities According to the media reports, the LPG-fuelled crematoriums are likely to be installed at Hindu cremation grounds in the GHMC zones in the next 15 days with each having a capacity of cremating 12 bodies every day. “The Covid-19 death toll in Telangana, as being shown in official Media Bulletin never exceeded 10 or15 on any given day. If the official figures are genuine, then why the State Government is making arrangements to cremate 60 more bodies in addition to the existing crematoriums. Are the authorities expecting the situation to worsen further or are they hiding an already worsened condition from the people?” Bandulal stated in a media statement on Tuesday.
Government should focus on strengthening the health infrastructure so as to save as many lives as possible, Bandulal demanded.
