Amidst the raging criticism over less testing and discrepancies in corona numbers, seems like Telangana government is in no mood to heed to the shocking realities in the state. While the state authorities still refuse to accept the bare facts, a shocking video surfaced on social media which stood as the witness for a mishandled pandemic.
Adding strength to the reports that the Telangana government is trying to bury the corona death numbers, a video showing mass cremations surfaced on Thursday. The cremations were learnt to take place in ESI hospital crematorium while tens of pyres were seen lit in the supervision of officials.

The video also had logs of wood ready for more cremations, discharged PPE kits and ambulances which apparently carried the dead bodies. According to the locals, over 45-50 bodies are being cremated every day at the odd hours which triggered suspicious.
This video set social media ablaze while netizens started tagging the public representatives questing over whose bodies are being cremated in the wee hours secretly. Congress MLA Seethakka joined the netizens raising concerns over the incapability of the state government in handling the pandemic.
“On 21st July, the reported Corona deaths are said to be 7 by Govt whereas more than 30 bodies were cremated at ESI graveyard only. The govt from the beginning itself providing us wrong statistics to hide their incapability in controlling the virus,” she tweeted.
