Though local residents claimed that there is no sufficient food available in the shelter, but sources in MCG said that the food is sufficient and is provided to all who come there.
MCG chief Ashok Sangwan also instructed his officials that no one should be sleeping on open roadsides and in areas like railway stations, bus stands, metro stations or under flyovers. He also instructed them to find and bring all these people to these night shelters so that they can be saved from cold winter nights.
He also assigned two more vehicles to bring these people from all over the city. MCG, also with the collaboration of railway authorities, is making daily announcements at the station so that they can raise awareness among people sleeping on platforms, and encourage them to come to shelters safely.
When this citizen journalist visited Bheem Nagar night shelter there were no sufficient beds and beddings, but MCG sources now claim that they have brought sufficient beds for the people staying there. They have also replenished the food supply after witnessing the increasing attendance.
