And some have to beg. But situation of some beggars is much better than the government employees. It is not clear who is the real beggar.
He added, professionalism of most beggars has caused people distrust to real beggars and people even refuse to contribute to real beggars. So the government should collect all beggars from the streets and train them in a certain occupation. Freshta another citizen said, “As we see the number of beggars in the city is countless. But some beggars grab our wallet, mobile etc. if we don’t pay them.

Those who had to beg, were released in one week. Others who needed medical services, were introduced by committee to the MoPH, another number who were eligible were sent to MoLSA for employment. The MoLSA had organized certain occupation including learning of tailoring, embroidery, English and computer etc.
