IndiaRahul Gandhi flays Central Government for not aiding kin of Covid-19 victims

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted, Life is priceless and financial aid for Covid-19 victims by the government come as a very small help but unfortunately, the Modi government is not even ready for that.

New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday slammed the Narendra Modi-led government over families of the Covid-19 victims not being provided compensation.

”Life is priceless and financial aid by the government comes as a very small help but unfortunately, the Modi government is not even ready to that,” he said in a tweet.

First, it was inadequate medical infrastructure to combat the virus, then it was undercounting of toll figures and topping it all was the government’s cruelty, Mr Gandhi added in another tweet.

The tweet follows the Centre’s response to the Supreme Court on Sunday overpaying Rs 4 lakh ex-gratia to kin of each Covid victims.

Paying compensation to around 3.85 lakh victims, a number which is likely to swell will exhaust the financial resources available with states and the Centre which is already reeling under financial distress.

Along with the tweets, Mr Gandhi tagged a media report on the Centre’s reply to the Top court.
