Cold wave continues to affect normal life in Delhi

New Delhi, Tue, 10 Jan 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Jan 10 (ANI): There was no respite for residents of Delhi, as the temperature plummeted further on Monday night and is expected to touch even lower levels in the coming days.


The biting cold and icy winds have magnified the agony of people living on the streets. As some of them gather around bonfires to warm themselves.


"We get all the garbage and burn it, to protect ourselves from the cold. We are rickshaw pullers, what else can we get? We have no money to get wood. We have no other alternative. Since the last two days, it is even colder after the shower of rain," said Monu Singh, a rickshaw puller.


The city has experienced foggy conditions over last few days, leading to low visibility and several accidents.


A recent downpour in the city heightened cold wave conditions, in north India.


"We sit inside the car to feel warm, we cover ourselves with a blanket and sit inside. We wind up the windows to protect ourselves from the strong winds. After the hailstorm, the cold wave has intensified," said Amar Mehta, a resident.


According to the Indian Meteorological Department, minimum temperature in most parts of northern India is likely to remain two to three degrees Celsius below normal, and the mercury will continue to dip. (ANI)
