Ghazipur crematorium staff holds mass funeral in adjoining parking lot amid rush

A mass funeral was held in a parking lot adjoining the Ghazipur crematorium in the national capital. With a ceaseless arrival of dead bodies at the crematorium the staff says they have no option but to start setting up pyres in the adjacent parking lot. The crematorium can only accommodate 36 bodies at a time and the body bags arriving are far exceeding that number. The second surge is ripping through the national capital and a struggling health care system that has completely caved in. Shortage of medical oxygen, hospital beds and essential drugs, have compounded the capital’s Covid emergency. Delhi on Friday officially logged 348 Covid-linked deaths.

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait blamed the Narendra Modi govt for the attack on his convoy. Stones were allegedly pelted at the farmer leader's car, damaging the rear windshield. “The government is responsible, who else can it be? It's their youth wing. They (attackers) were saying, 'Rakesh Tikait, Go Back’. Where should I go? They hurled stones and used lathis. Why are they fighting us, we are farmers, not a political party,” Tikait said. The alleged attack took place on Friday afternoon in Rajasthan’s Alwar district. Tikait, however, was not in his car when the stones were allegedly pelted.
