Homeless persons staying at the two night shelters at Bhimnagar and TSR Complex will get meal at night at the shelters. They will also get iron cots.
Municipal Commissioner M. V. Satyanarayana and former IAS Officer E. A. S. Sarma inaugurated the meal programme on Wednesday evening. The Commissioner said for providing meal to the 140 at the two shelters the corporation would spend Rs.2 lakh every month. The cots will cost Rs.8 lakh. For now 60 cots are being provided at Bhimnagar. Proposals were sent to Hudco seeking assistance to construct three more shelters with a cost of Rs.80 lakh at Dandu Bazar, near the Collectorate and Daba Gardens.
