On the wintry night of 2nd January, Pradeep Verma with his party volunteers distributed blankets to the homeless. The initiative covered the streets between Powai and Sakinaka, along with some streets in Andheri. A total of 300 blankets were distributed to the homeless and underprivileged.
As the number of unsheltered individuals has seen a rapid increase, this initiative aims to address the issue of their health and safety. Underprivileged street vendors were also given blankets to protect them from harsh temperatures.
In the coming future, Mumbai Congress plans to distribute more blankets. They aim to extend this to the elderly persons living in the slums.
