Yadav, who was the previous Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, criticized the present state administration for dealing with the epidemic, claiming it was expensive with Covid-19, lack of life-saving medications, and carelessness in its dealings with Mucormycosis.

The Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav took aim at the Uttar Pradesh administration on Tuesday after a study stated that the death toll from the coronavirus illness (Covid-19) in the state's 24 districts is considerably higher than official data suggests. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led administration, according to Akhilesh Yadav, is covering not just the death toll but also its own face.

“According to information accessed through the Right to Information (RTI), it has come to light that the death toll in 24 districts of Uttar Pradesh in the nine months of the pandemic till March 31, 2021, is up to 43 times higher than the government figures,” Yadav’s tweeted.

Yadav, the previous chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has been critical of the present state government's handling of the epidemic, accusing it of overcharging for Covid-19 therapy, running out of life-saving drugs, and treating Mucormycosis negligently.

Agra, Ghaziabad, Bareilly, Meerut, and Gautam Buddh Nagar are among the 24 districts where fatalities have been misreported, according to the study. The conclusions are based on a comparison of the official death toll in these areas over the course of nine months with the extra fatalities registered in the state's Civil Registration System (CRS). An RTI application was used to acquire the mortality statistics.

According to an RTI response acquired by Article 14, the total number of fatalities documented in these 24 districts was 375,000. 

However, according to the CSR, only 178,000 people died during this time period.

“The non- Covid, as well as Covid deaths, are being registered in all the 75 districts, the local authorities as well as birth and death registration cell has been directed to register all the births and deaths in the respective districts,” cabinet minister Siddharth Nath Singh told in a report.
