Begging rife in Ramazan.

LAHORE -- Despite instructions of the Punjab chief minister, beggars continued to bother citizens in Ramazan across the provincial capital.

A majority of beggars, mostly able-bodied, can be seen at traffic signals and cross-roads. In bazaars, buyers have frequent encounters with them. MAO College, Regal Chowk, Chauburji, Shadman, Garhi Shahu, Muslim Town Morr, Ichhra, Anarkali, Moon Market, Data Darbar, Baghbanpura, railway station and Badami Bagh are their favourite places.

When contacted, CCPO Chaudhry Mohammed Shafiq told that he had strictly ordered immediate removal of beggars from traffic signals and cross-roads. However, he said, if there are beggars on any road of the city, they would be removed forthwith.

"I have also directed the chief traffic officer to ensure their early removal," he added.
