Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out on the authorities for not paying ex-gratia compensation to households of those that died of Covid. “It is impossible to valuate life, government’s compensation is only a small help, but the Modi government is not ready to even do that,” he mentioned.
“First the lack of treatment during the Covid pandemic and then the false figures and on top of that the government’s cruelty,” he mentioned in a tweet in Hindi. Also Read – World Music Day: Wishes and Quotes -The Rise and Rise of the Indie Music Scene in India
The Centre has instructed the Supreme Court that ex-gratia compensation of Rs 4 lakh can’t be paid to the households of those that have died of COVID-19 as it’s past fiscal affordability and the funds of central and state governments are below extreme pressure.
