Lack of night shelters and amenities have led to the death of over 70 homeless and poor people, due to extreme cold wave conditions prevailing in most parts of Uttar Pradesh.

Twenty-two deaths from Poorvanchal, three each in Brij and Bareilly divisions, 11 in Allahabad division and 28 in Bundelkhand region have been reported so far.

“Two persons – Ram Kishore Rawat, 40, and Mahesh, 35, have died in Barabanki district due to the severe cold, moreover one person died in Harchandpur in Faizabad, an infant in Ambedkarnagar, one in Rae Bareli’s Makhdoompur and one in Unchahaar,” according to an official report.

A government official said that adequate arrangements have been made for bonfires and night shelters; however, the ground realities were in stark contrast to these claims.
