The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president, Pritam Singh has said that the chief minister (CM) Trivendra Singh Rawat is trying to cover up deaths due to the novel Coronavirus in the state. In a statement, the PCC president objected to the claims made by the CM that no death from Covid-19 has occurred in the state so far. He said on one hand CM is claiming no deaths from Covid-19 in the state while and on the other hand the data released by the state administration informs that 10 people have so far lost their lives from the Covid-19. The PCC president said that the declaration of ex gratia payment of Rs 1 lakh for the family of those who died from Covid-19 is meager and the amount should be increased to Rs 10 lakhs.
