After days of appealing to the government to make education free for undergraduates for children lost to their loved ones for Kovid-19, Sonu Sood has again requested the government and related organizations to come together and make the crematorium free. . , Enabling those who cannot charge, the chance to cremate their loved ones in a fair and honorable manner.
On Saturday, Sood shared a video on Instagram and described how people from rich to poor are struggling at every stage of their journey to fight Kovid-19.
He told a story about a Kovid-19 patient who passed away, and how his family struggled to cremate the corpse because they had no money.
“By around 2 pm last night, we were trying to get a bed for a Kovid patient. We were able to find a bed. But then, he struggled for a ventilator. Between 5 and 6:30 am, we could provide a ventilator for him, but he passed. Later, we struggled to cremate him. They (the family of the deceased) could not find a place in the crematorium. Also, they did not have money for this. Later, we could perform the last rites of the patient who passed away. But in all of this, I thought to myself that in today’s time, everyone, from poor to rich or middle class, they are struggling to get oxygen, then oxygen bed, then ICU and ventilator. Many of them concede defeat in between. Some did not even find a place in the cremation ground because they do not have money. We are helping many people, but there are still many who cannot reach us. I have a humble request that the concerned authorities and the government be asked to enact laws that cremation grounds should not be charged. We are losing about 3 to 4 thousand people every day. It takes about 15-12 thousand to cremate a person. So, it is a total cost of 6-7 crores, ”Sonu said in the video.
He said that if cremation ghats are made free, people will be able to perform the last rites of their family members in a proper manner.
“I urge every government to come together and make the cremation process free. We all need to think about it. It is time to come together and make people feel that we are together, ”concluded the actor.
Earlier this week, Sonu Sood shared a video and urged educational institutions to enforce a rule that whoever “lost family members during Kovid-19, the education of their children, from school to college , Whether it is in a government school or a private school, should be free. “
