Beggars Will Be Paid in World Cup Cricket 2011

The mayor of Chittagong Manjurul Alam is keen to see the roads are beggarless. He said that he would pay 300 beggars 150 TK as a daily wage.

The opening ceremony in Chittagong will start on February 17.

Alam soon will meet the beggars' representatives. He will discuss with them about payments & other benefits. He said,"We want to treat the issue as humanely as possible. Many of these beggars are disabled and many have families and their children studying in schools and colleges."

According to a estimation, Bangladesh has about 700,000 beggars, with those in urban areas earning an average of 100 taka a day from donations.
