 It’s common knowledge that during spells of acute cold weather, the poor, the destitute, and particularly the homeless are most vulnerable to high fever and even death. Desperate situation calls for desperate measures. Four IAS officers of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Jharkhand have taken extra measures to provide various facilities to large number of people surviving on roadsides, bus-stands, and town intersections.

Mr. Alok Ranjan Ghosh, District Magistrate of Khagaria in Bihar is helping people through arranging bonfires at town=square intersections, outside railway stations, and bus stands. At the same time, the district administration has also asked people to stay indoors to avoid the cold waves as also to help contain the spread of coronavirus.

The district administration has identified several spots in the district which are crowded with people even at the night time. Mr. Singh has arranged bonfires at such places to help these people endure the chilly nights.
