When migrant workers from Bihar, who were provided shelter at NTR Nagar School behind the Rangareddy district court complex, said they cannot satiate their hunger without roti and that they cannot survive with just rice, Rangareddy principal district judge Y Renuka and district legal services authority secretary Uday Kumar promptly supplied wheat flour and made arrangements on the school premises to prepare rotis there. Curries were supplied to them. This was just a small part of what the DLSA did.
Ever since the lockdown was announced and many poor people started going without food, legal services’ officials along with scores of paralegal volunteers have been helping women, children, girls, differently abled, mentally challenged, at shelters for migrants, old-age homes, etc, located all over erstwhile RR district and ensuring that inmates of the homes are adequately fed.
Judicial officers and staff mobilised funds on their own and also involved the state machinery wherever required to keep the feeding programme going without interruption. Apart from supplying groceries and rice in the slum areas with the help of paralegal volunteers who are part of DLSA, help was extended to the vulnerable sections during the lockdown period at areas such as Vanasthalipuram, Samshabad, LB Nagar, Uppal, Amberpet, Quthbullapur, Dundigal and Medchal where several homes and temporary shelters for the poor were provided.
Uday said some Marwari community people in Medchal have also helped in feeding a hundred poor persons daily. “In most shelters, GHMC Annapurna canteens have also been catering to the needs of the people in these shelters. Some software professionals are also extending help to us regularly,” Uday told TOI.
