“Pained to see bodies of COVID-19 patients in Nellore being disrespectfully thrown into a single pit using an Earthmover. This is happening time & again. @ysjagan Govt must offer an apology to the grieving families who wished for a respectful departure for their loved ones, ” tweeted N Chandrababu Naidu along with the video.
