TDS DESK:

Social Welfare Minister Dipu Moni on Sunday informed the parliament that the government has taken a plan to create a database of beggars across the country.

Begging will be eradicated by providing various trainings and counselling to genuine beggars based on accurate data, she said.

Dipu Moni said there is no accurate data on the number of people depending on others for their livelihood in Dhaka city.

Due to river erosion, extreme poverty, disease, illiteracy etc, some people, who truly need financial support, are resorting to begging, Dipu Moni noted.

However, there are some unemployed people who choose begging as a way of easy income, the minister said.
