After Congress objection on Centre over misreporting of Covid deaths in India, the AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday accused the Centre for botching up the actual number of casualties due Covid-19 in the country.
Slamming the Centre for Covid mishandling, he alleged that India’s Covid death toll is nowhere close to the real extent of damage. He also said that families who have lost a dear one deserve to be counted.
Sharing an article that claimed that India’s Covid-19 deaths were much higher than officially reported he tweeted that this piece reiterates what I’ve been saying. India’s official death toll from covid is nowhere close to real extent of damage. Questioning to the Centre, he asked how long will government botch numbers to make itself feel good?
He tweeted that families who have lost a dear one deserve to be counted.
Stating that the government’s data on Covid deaths is not validated, the AIMIM MP alleged that every study on Covid casualties points to unrecorded deaths.
Hitting out at the government in an another tweet, Owaisi said the govt has responded to this piece by saying that these studies aren’t validated but neither is govt’s own data. he said every study on covid deaths points to unrecorded deaths. He said instead of honestly reviewing, govt initiates hit job.
