Beggary has become a regular feature at almost all the public places. We see beggars at bus stands, railway platforms, hospitals, markets and traffic lights. Even healthy people are seen begging, while small children are also pushed into this social evil.
Beggary has become a profession and even able-bodied persons do not want to earn their bread by doing manual work. Many beggars are professional pick-pockets and thieves as numerous incidents of chain-snatching and purse-lifting are reported at traffic lights.
The authorities should seriously consider putting a stop to this menace and steps should be taken to put a complete ban on beggary.
