I read it too, apparently, the official machinery is also getting rid of beggars from the areas that Ivanka Trump is due to visit.Whenever these international dignitaries or celebrities visit, then the municipal and civil work departments work overtime to keep everything spic and span so that the image of the city is clean and neat. Even in Bangalore, where ever such visits happen, there are many traffic police at key areas, half-hazard parking and public vehicles are streamlined, private buses are stopped well away from the planned routes and destination. roads are cleaned and most important garbage and big hoardings of political parties are brought down. If it's a national political leaders visits, then everything above happens in addition to plenty of flex banners and arches to welcome them.
We can't blame them, like we all prefer to be presentable at functions and meetings, so too the city is made presentable!
