BJP accuses Bengal govt of fudging Covid-19 death toll

Apr 29, 2020 17:09 IST

Adding another chapter to the BJP vs Mamata saga in Bengal, BJP's Bengal in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya has shot off a six-page letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee accusing her of misrepresenting the number of Covid-19 deaths in the state. Labelling her attitude towards the Centre and the Governor as 'confrontationist', the senior BJP leader said that the TMC chief's behaviour is making the situation in Bengal worse. Accusing her of 'abject failure' Vijayvargiya claimed that the day West Bengal announced 18 deaths in the state, her own officials told the central team that the real count was 57. He also called Bengal's testing rate 'shamefully inadequate'.
