Worried perhaps of what Ivanka Trump might get to see on Hyderabad’s streets during her visit later this month, the police on Tuesday banned begging on the streets.
During his meeting with President Trump in Washington in June, Modi had invited Ivanka for the GES, which started in 2010. Officials said whether Ivanka will be visiting other cities or not will be known in the coming days as the two sides work out the details of the high-profile visit.
But the biggest surprise came in the form of a written order by Hyderabad police commissioner M Mahendar Reddy, who issued a notification prohibiting begging in the city. Ivanka, advisor and daughter of the United States President Donald Trump, will address a session during the November 28-30 global summit. After the GES gets over, thousands of NRI Telugus will converge in the city for a five-day World Telugu Conference from December 15. Interestingly, the ban order shall be in force from 6 am on Wednesday to 6 am on January 7, 2018.
In the notification, which was issued for the first time in recent times, the commissioner said: Begging alms and also employing children and handicapped for begging in public places and at the main road junctions in the city of Hyderabad by causing inconvenience, annoyance, danger and safety of the vehicular traffic and pedestrians, is prohibited. “They are also employing children and handicapped persons to seek alms at the main junctions of roads. Such acts are causing annoyance and awkwardness by exposing in an indecent manner to divert the attention of the vehicular traffic as well as pedestrians and public, in general, to induce them to give I alms. These acts are dangerous to the safety of the vehicular traffic and public in general,” the notification says.Officials cited Section 144 of CrPc to prohibit begging.
“Any person violating this order shall be able for punishment under Section 188 of the Indian penal code and as per the provisions of Hyderabad City Police Act, 1348 Fasli, TS Prevention of Begging Act, 1977 and J.J. Act 2000,” the officials said.
A similar rule was forced in the city several years ago when the US President Bill Clinton arrived and the municipal authorities shifted beggars away from the road junctions across the city.
