CPIML Bihar State Secretary Kunal said on 19 April that the privatization of all three crematoriums in Patna is extremely condemnable and demanded the immediate repeal of this decision.

He said that if there are any problems in running the crematoriums, the answer is to resolve the problems and not to privatize the crematoriums. This move has to be seen as part of the entire series of privatization attempts by the Central and State governments which is sheer injustice in these Covid crisis times.
