On Sunday, Congress said that the genuine and credible figures of deaths in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic should come out, and it would strive to get Rs 4 lakh of compensation each to the family of those who died of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rahul Gandhi, Congress Leader, put out a video of the families who suffered and died during the second wave of coronavirus as a part of the party’s campaign to exert pressure on the Central government in order to provide compensation to the affected families.
In the Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, leader of the opposition, said that the issues would be raised in both houses of the Parliament by the Congress and would strive to get a compensation of Rs 4 lakh from the government for all the affected families.
The video shared by Rahul Gandhi on Twitter was 4.31-minute long in which there were families who suffered or lost their family members and friends in coronavirus pandemic in Gujarat and were alleging that the government did not provide any help during that time.
The Gujarat Model, which is projected as best in the country by the ruling party Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), was also attacked by Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi.
He further said in the video that Gujarat Model is discussed and talked about a lot by the BJP.
Still, when they spoke to the families, they came to know that the families were provided neither the hospital beds nor the ventilators or oxygen.
The former Congress chief claimed that the truth is, due to the covid-19 pandemic, around 3 lakh people have died.
However, the Gujarat government says officially only 10,000 people have lost their lives during this time.
He further said that the truth about the Covid deaths should come out, and adequate compensation should be provided to the families whose family members died.
The job of the government is to help people. When the people of the state were in the hospital, the government was supposed to offer them help, and it did not do so.
Now when the people have spent a lot of money on hospital treatments, the government is not coming forward to offer them a compensation of Rs 4 lakh.
