| Sunday | 29th March, 2020
New Delhi: With thousands of migrants thronging the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh borders and trying to return to their native states by any available transport or even foot, the Arvind Kejriwal government has started setting up temporary shelters for them at its schools.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday said two schools in border areas have been opened for migrants on Saturday — in Anand Vihar and Ghazipur.
Not just shelter, food is also being arranged in these schools for those who wish to stay.
However, thousands of such migrants are stuck on the Delhi borders with neighbouring states.
The Delhi government has started 568 hunger relief centres in schools, apart from 238 night shelters to provide food to over four lakh people daily.
