Night shelters in Ghaziabad in a mess as temperature drops

The temperature drops down in Ghaziabad making the homeless huddle around small fires built with wood torn from the trees, braving the rains and hailstorms.

Night shelters in the city are in complete mess having toilets without water or functioning flushes and broken window pane allowing the cold air in.

Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam chief said that the corporation had 14 regular night shelters, and 5 temporary ones inside tents. "We have a capacity of about 1,000 inmates inside the regular ones and about 250 in the temporary ones. The night shelters are basically meant for rickshaw pullers and others who have no home to live in at all."

The inmates sleep on thin sheets on the floor and the blankets and mattresses are also unwashed since a long time.
