UP mantri: Can’t check dumping of bodies in river | India News – Times of India


LUCKNOW: While the horror of spotting corpses floating in the Ganga has triggered panic among people and sparked off a slugfest between Uttar Pradesh and Bihar governments over dumping of bodies of suspected Covid victims in rivers, UP cabinet minister for jal shakti and water resources Mahendra Singh said on Thursday his department has little option to check the menace.
“People know and understand they should not dump bodies in rivers, but what can be done if people clandestinely do it in the dead of night,” Singh told TOI. He, however, maintained that the administration of districts where corpses were found afloat were taking requisite steps.
