Tirupati MLA and YSR Congress chief Bhumana Karunakar Reddy carried out the final rites to 21 individuals who died of COVID-19.
Mr. Reddy, who himself recovered from COVID-19 twice final 12 months, donning a PPE go well with, carried the packed our bodies in a procession.
He expressed remorse over the way during which even blood relations, gripped with a way of worry and guilt, had been watching the our bodies of their beloved from a distance.
“When an entire family dies, the bodies lie unclaimed. This is not an economic issue, but a humanitarian issue. We have to get rid of the scare and give a decent farewell to the deceased, of course, by taking precautionary measures”, he added.
The array of packed our bodies neatly organized on the bottom in entrance of the mortuary of Sri Venkateswara Ramnarain Ruia Government General Hospital (SVRRGGH) painted a grim image. The our bodies had been provided garlands and the rituals carried out in keeping with their social customs.
Maha Prasthanam, a Rotary Club-supported organisation took care of performing final rites to Hindu our bodies, whereas Muslim JAC has shouldered the duty of shopping for the our bodies of their neighborhood members.
