India: Hyderabad «crackdowns on beggars» ahead of Ivanka Trump’s visit

Authorities in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad are reportedly 'cracking down' beggars, Friday, ahead of a visit from White House advisor Ivanka Trump on November 28. Homeless charity Amma Nanna Anada Ashramam is trying to provide shelter to some of the most vulnerable in the city. In an interview on Friday, Joint Secretary of the organisation Gattu Giri said, «The government issued an... Еще order to crackdown on beggars ahead of Ivanka Trump's visit to Hyderabad. We attended the meeting with the prison service, police departments and GHMC [Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation] officials and discussed the possibility of rescuing the beggars, and rehabilitating them, and providing them with employment.» The charity estimates that there are 13,000 beggars in Hyderabad. Begging is a criminal offence in India, although the law is rarely enforced. Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the US President Donald Trump, will be a speaker at the eighth edition of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held in Hyderabad between 28-30 November. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also expected to attend.
