As part of relief efforts in disaster-hit Uttarakhand, the central health ministry has sent 1,600 body bags to the state.
Health Minister Surinder Singh Negi on Sunday spoke on the lines of Assembly speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal, who had pegged the death toll at 10,000.
BJP President Rajnath Singh accused the Congress-led UPA Government of bluffing the country over the number of lives lost in the recent Uttarakhand flash floods.
The death toll in flood-ravaged Uttarakhand may cross the reported 1,000 mark after the debris is cleared, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said Monday.
