If you move around Kolkata you will notice one thing, how homelessness is quite an example of nonchalance of governments.
No, I am absolutely against the snatching of houses of people who have multiple houses, if they have obtained them by illegal means then the government can of course first prove it in court of law and then take it from them but that is another story.
I have seen how deserted housings are slowly crumbling to dust, there are quite handful of them in Kolkata, fully built housings locked up for one reason or other and on the other hand you will see homeless people suffering nature’s wrath, huddling under tarpaulin, whole families!
Now, even if those housings are disputed properties cant governments change them into temporary shelters? Beofre allowing the homeless to stay they may make them sign documents that they will leave the premises in a week’s notice! They can but they wont!
This is how homeless people multiply I think!
