Through the columns of your esteemed paper, I want to invite the attention of the district authorities to the problem of beggary in out town. Recently, the number of beggars in our area has increased to a large extend. They pursue us like a shadow, even hale and hearty people have taken to begging, Children are the most effected victims of this begging disease, perhaps they are made to beg by their guardians. The beggars gather at places frequently by the people. The bus stands, market places, post offices, railway stations and mosques seems to be their point of attraction because of which it is impossible to move about such places peacefully.
