The Kamrup (Metro) Deputy Commissioner Pallav Gopal Jha told ANI that the drive has been conducted following the directive of the Assam Chief Minister for road accident safety measures and it will be continued in other parts of the city and the beggars street dwellers will be rehabilitated.
“CM keeps visiting the city at night and sees the issues the city faces. A new problem has been developing in Guwahati for the last 3-4 months, the number of beggars and street dwellers has increased considerably. That poses a challenge of different sorts. We are conducting a drive to send them to govt shelter homes and NGOs. We are trying to understand why they are outside on the streets,” he said
