New Delhi: The Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi Government had made an announcement to replace all night shelters being run from plastic tents with porta cabins.

But this promise makes no sense to the poorest of the poor who are left to battle the harsh cold and hunger out in the open.

As the national capital is witnessing severe cold this winter, the number of homeless deaths has gone up over the past three weeks.  

Over 181 unidentified bodies have been found in Delhi, and most of them believed to have died due to biting cold.
