In a noble gesture, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) allowed to enjoy metro ride to all the beneficiaries of all the six shelters for homeless persons free of cost from Zero Mile to Khapri Metro Station on the eve of World Homelsss Day.
NMC thinks that these homeless persons are also a part of the city but they have to suffer a miserable life. They have also right to live happily. Hence, the corporation has constructed shelters for them at six places under Deendayal Antyoday Yojna-Rashtriya Nagari Upajivika Abhiyaan (DAY-NULM). The scheme provided shelter to these persons, who otherwise used to sleep on open places. This has become a big support to them as NMC has also provided all the basic amenities to these beneficinaries.
Pramod Khobragade, Manager, Livelihood Campaign, Vinay Trikolwar and Nootan More brought all these beneficiaries together and made them enjoy metro ride under the guidance of Dipak Meena, Additional Municipal Commissioner, and Rajesh Bhagat, Deputy Municipal Commissioner.
