Begging Syndicates

Bhawna Garg Begging is an organized crime in India.
I’ve seen beggars throwing away food donated to them. Not just this, sometimes, they even ask for a higher amount. Their bosses might beat them up if they don’t get them enough money. Also, the babies carried around by pre-teenage girls are mostly kidnapped.

Since this is a law and order issue, how do you plan to tackle this?
As you might be knowing, begging is a crime in India. The problem is with the implementation.

There has to be reason for them to stop begging. Firstly those to be caught and procecuted should not be the beggars but those making them beg, they are the ones facilitating everything and making the begging it self feel like a job to them. As for stopping the trend it self the major reason why an average normal human would beg is to eat. If he can get food on a daily basis he won’t need to beg so if he has somewhere to come get a meal he won’t need to beg some counseling as well to build their self esteem. If the givt can’t sponsor the food provision private compaines could do it. Just my thoughts on it

That’s how we can curtail it. Its not a one day thing or something you do by force because its a choice they make, but they more reason you give them to not have too beg to eat the more won’t see begging as an option cause food its free and not even an issue of if you lazy or not. Most don’t beg for clothing or housing cause no matter how much they roll in for the independent beggers they Neva buy cloths or anything but food which is there immediate need that’s what we need to attack. If no one sponsors you can find volunteers cooks and arms them go get leftovers from restaurants and prepare it again as a new delicacy that they will value. Then counsel and before there know it they spend the whole day at this centers you’ve opened hope I’ve helped

After you have changed their need to beg to eat then through counseling you could get them jobs showing a better life asides from walking the streets for some fat lazy bully begging for change and losing their self dignity.
