Despite night shelters, people forced to sleep out in cold

Ludhiana (Punjab), Jan 05 (ANI): Cold wave continues to grip the northern belt of the country and with the temperature dropping even further, the homeless are left with no option but to sleep in the open. In Ludhiana, scores of people lined the footpath of a flyover while those awake tried keeping themselves warm by burning garbage.

Rain Basera, the night shelters provided by the government, are not an option for these homeless as they complained of unhygienic conditions there. While the night shelters housed the homeless in Amritsar, there were many others who slept on roadsides.

Members of an NGO also came to distribute blankets to the lot.
