New Delhi, July 9 (IANS) Delhi’s AAP government said on Thursday that it will provide help to Pakistani Hindus in the capital after they told Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that they were leading a miserable existence.
“They are living in inhuman conditions near Majnu ka Tilla (in north Delhi) without electricity and water. We have decided to help these families,” an Aam Aadmi Party government official said.
The chief minister ordered an inspection of their living quarters after some of the Pakistani Hindus met him and detailed their many problems.
