Kathmandu to be Declared ‘Beggar-Free’ City
Kathmandu – The Kathmandu Metropolitan City has decided to declare itself as a ‘beggar-free metropolitan city’. This declaration would be made on December 15 on the occasion of the 25th KMC Day.
A meeting of the KMC Executive on Tuesday took the decision, Bidya Sundar Shakya says. Kathmandu would become the second ‘beggar-free metropolis’ in Nepal after Biratnagar.
According to mayor Shakya, the KMC will lead this initiative and the Manav Sewa Ashram will manage it. The Ashram is a social organisation that is working for rescuing the helpless, mentally ill and the destitute who live by begging in the streets, providing them with food and shelter and giving them health care.
The metropolis has been supporting the Ashram by paying the rent of the building where the people rescued from the streets are sheltered, purchasing vehicles for the Ashram and constructing its building.
Mayor Shakya says the city government will also collaborate with the other state agencies like the District Administration Office, Nepal Police and the statutory bodies of society and the media in the drive.
