KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has decided to declare itself as the ‘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 November 19 took the decision to this effect, KMC Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya said.

KMC would become the second ‘beggar-free metropolis’ after this declaration. Before this, Bharatpur Metropolitan City has declared itself a beggar-free metropolis on October 26.

According to mayor Shakya KMC will lead this initiative and the Manav Sewa Ashram will manage it.

The Ashram is a social organization 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.

It has also been reuniting those whose families have been identified with their families. The Ashram is working in this sector for the last eight years.
