UP CM Yogi Adityanath orders patrolling to curb disposal of bodies in rivers
LUCKNOW: In a bid to stop people from disposing of bodies in rivers, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Friday ordered patrolling by the SDRF and PAC. The CM’s directions have come as a number of bodies were found floating in the Ganga recently, triggering suspicion that the abandoned corpses could be those of Covid patients.
The State Disaster Response Force and the Provincial Armed Constabulary should patrol rivers and ensure that no bodies are disposed of in rivers, the CM ordered, according to a statement. He said in areas on banks of rivers, committees including village development officers and village heads should be formed to ensure that no one dumps bodies in rivers.
“All those who died deserve cremation with respect. The state go nment has already sanctioned funds for performing the last rites,” the CM said. “No one should be allowed to dispose of bodies in rivers,” the CM added, stressing that if need be, a fine may be imposed at the local level to prevent it.
“The go nment is also running a special campaign for cleaning of rivers. Home, urban and rural development departments should make a policy to prevent it,” he added.
People of UP must not compn.They ved for Yogi and celebrated him.So sit back and watch what unfolds.I dont think this the end
He is doing his best..better than others ..
If a State Govt..... pleads ignorance --- not aware of scores of dead bodies floating in the holy river -- for days together -- caught red-handed...... IS IT A GOVT. WORTHY OF THE TERM.......? Gok
This useless chap was taking bath in river and world media was publishing this group of completely Nakd men infront of women and girls. Shameless
This criminal never deserved to beCM. People ofUP are fed up of him as seen in recent ions.
he will identify the bodies and will sieze their properties.
Well said.That needs to bedone.Consequences are a must besides dignity for the departed.
Yogi never bothered to builld a governing entity as the CM. He was more interested in running the Kumbha Mela or lighting diyas or running ion campaigns in other states, or going to Gorakhpur for his second job.
Thanks at least he has taken action. Normally he is insensitive to such issues.

Yogijee should arrest all people in other states who find these bodies.
Better to cook all the dead bodies n serve as food. All ate starving.. No oxygen no food.. But still breeding
Yogi,like his boss,is more worried about social media than dead bodies thrown in ganga
Resign and go back to pakistan
Bisht the beast, is only uttering enough to make it look like he is taking steps. Bodies will keep showing up. Patrolling is only to keep away reporters.
All Indians are eating human flesh. PEOPLE WHO DIED OF COVID ARE NOT BEING CREMEATED AS NO WOOD, NO ELECTRICITY IN CREMATORIUM. DEAD BODIES ARE BEING SET AFLOAT IN RIVERS. EXPERT BIRYANI COOKS ARE PREPARING N SELLING... NO FOOD.. NO OXYGEN.. NO AMBULANCE.. NO VACCINE,. all in black market now..

Ask them to resign no one will blame then.
Did the Go nment dispose the deadbodies in waterbodies, or the citizens? The crime is committed by the citizens, blaming the Govt. for your fault is escapism.
Patrolling can't help, bodies awaiting disposal will begin putrefying and stench will create more infections.
