'Provide shelters to 328 left homeless by Aila'
The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday directed the DMs of South and North 24-Parganas to provide shelters to 328 petitioners who claimed to have received no help from the government for their rehabilitation under the scheme prepared for the Aila-affected persons. After the 2008 cyclone had rendered thousands homeless in the coastal belt of the state, the government had decided to build homes for the affected people. The villagers in a writ petition alleged that they have been living in temporary shelters for the last four years. According to the petition, their names were not enlisted in the beneficiary list prepared by the district administration.
