High Court grants applicants time to file reply | Bhopal News

Bhopal/Jabalpur: The State Government, in response to two separate queries regarding the lack of adequate foster homes in the state, has informed a divisional bench of the High Court of Deputies that there are 57 foster homes for home operating statewide.
The court, while allowing time for the petitioners to file a reply to the response submitted by the state government, adjourned the hearing of the case to March 7.
Petitions filed by Dr PG Najpande and Dr MA Khan claimed that destitute people were sleeping in decrepit buildings or by the roadside because there were not enough homes to accommodate them.
They had referred to the death of two people after the roof of a decrepit building at the Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) market near Ghantaghar in the city of Jabalpur collapsed on top of them. In a separate petition, they said young children can be seen begging or working on roads and other public places in the presence of traffic cops, but they pay no attention to them.
This despite the fact that there is a law prohibiting child labor. The petitioners said the elderly can also be seen on roads and other public places since they have no shelter. They referred to a viral video from Indore in which beggars were left outside the city limits of the city in cold and cold weather in this context. The state government, in its response to the petitions, said there were 57 foster homes in the state.
