Govt Must Be Held Accountable For ‘Failing’ Its People, Says Akhilesh After Bodies Found Floating In Ganga

Mumbai: Several bodies were seen floating in the Gangas in the last few days, with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav saying on Thursday that Yogi Adityanath’s government in Uttar Pradesh should be held accountable for “failing” its people badly.

“Bodies found floating in the Ganges are not a statistic, they’re someone’s father, mother, brother and sister. What has transpired shakes you to your core. There has to be accountability from the very government that has failed its people so badly,” Yadav said in a tweet.

According to Ballia residents, at least 52 bodies were seen floating on the Ujiyar, Kulhadia and Bharauli ghats of the Narhi region.

However, the district authorities did not tell the exact number of bodies found there.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh on Thursday recorded 17,775 fresh Covid-19 cases that pushed the infection count to 15,80,980, while 281 new fatalities took the death toll to 16,646 in the state, officials said.
