Beggars in our Country: whether to encourage or to eradicate?No single day passes without seeing a beggar in our country. Wherever you go, their network follows. Whether it be a temple, bus, train, bus stand, railway station, signal junction, mela or religious celebrations, we witness their presence everywhere. People of different age groups including some who are fully healthy can also be seen begging. Sometimes very small children are also used for the profession.
Our country is moving very fast to become a developed one in all spheres of activities. Any political party heading the government, announces so many schemes focusing on poverty. So many efforts are being taken by every government to eradicate poverty. But we have never seen any scheme or at least any statement from any government to see a beggar-less India. At times we see transporting of beggars at the time of organizing international events like the common wealth games.
In the present scenario, what is your opinion whether the beggars are to be encouraged with some alms or should they be eradicated fully with some schemes from the government?
