"The report of death of 91 homeless people has shocked Delhi. These deaths have exposed the Kejriwal government's claims of providing facilities and shelter to the homeless people," Tiwari alleged in a statement. The L-G should direct the chief secretary and other officials for surprise visits at these shelter homes to ensure the homeless people have safer place to sleep at night, he said.

"We have come to know that at many places the shelters are locked and at few others the caretakers ask for money for entry. Sanitation condition is very poor at many other shelters," he said. He also demanded Kejriwal resign from the chief minister's post taking responsibility for the deaths of homeless people.
