The leader was admitted to the Maharaja Balwant Singh Government Hospital in Bhadohi city on April 22 when his Corona report came positive. He died on April 27 during treatment. Family members said that doctors and officials were asked to get him admitted to the ICU due to his poor health, but they did not do so. Not only this, Remedesivir injection was also demanded, but was not made available.
