New Delhi: Congress has demanded an inquiry into reports in the New York Times that data on corona cases and deaths in India have been tampered with. Congress has demanded a judge-led inquiry into the matter.
India recorded the highest number of corona cases during the second wave. So far 3,33,82,690 people have been affected by corona in India. There are 3,34,281 active patients in India. Daily cases in India have gone below 30,000.
So far 3,25,91,196 people in India have recovered from corona. 4,44,288 people have died due to corona. The third wave has not yet officially started in India.
According to the New York Times, this is the second wave of cases and deaths in India. The figure was underestimated in order to protect the policy and value of the central government in India and the ICMR did not issue a timely warning of a second wave. According to an article in the New York Times, the federal government has not issued any warning to state governments.
But the ICMR side has denied all the information in this regard. There were no glitches in the data. We only update the number of corona and the number of victims given by the state governments. It is explained that there is no chance of the central government or the ICMR party messing up.
The Congress party has demanded that a formal inquiry be held under the chairmanship of a Supreme Court judge. Also, the Congress get over an an inquiry into the views of Prime Minister Modi, former health minister Harsha Vardhan and ICMR executives. In an interview with Congress general secretary Ajay McCann, he said it was time to file a criminal case against Prime Minister Modi.
The actual death toll is more than 4 lakh, the report said. The actual death toll is said to be around 68 lakh. This is no ordinary thing. Only a handful of executives at ICMR have come out and spoken openly about the abuse. Former ICMR executive Anup Agarwal has claimed that the second wave was a mess.
He left India. This is why we need to investigate this in detail. State governments were not warned of the second wave in a timely manner. Thus the state governments were not ready for the second wave of Corona. According to the report, up to 68 lakh people may have been killed across the country due to this, said Ajay McCann.
Federal government denial
Federal Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has denied this. We have been recording corona numbers and deaths following internationally prescribed rules. State governments were given full freedom in this. The press acted independently. He explained that they were doing this to distract people and create tension.
