Police in India are trying to remove beggars from the street Wednesday, in preparation for Ivanka Trump’s visit later this month.
Trump is set to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit from Nov. 28 to 30 that will take place in Hitec City. The Hyderabad police want to go through extra measures to make the city not only look pristine for foreign visitors, but also for traffic concerns. The police’s desire to get the city spruced up for Trump’s visit prompted the relocation of approximately 400 beggars to a rehabilitation center, reported The Indian Express.
The beggars were taken to the rehabilitation center at Chanchalguda Jail under the instructions of Police Commissioner M Mahender Reddy “to make the city beggar-free,” said Goshamahal ACP Narender Reddy, according to ABC News.
“These acts are dangerous to the safety of the vehicular traffic and public in general,” according to the city police, in regards to beggars on the street. This prohibition will be in effect until Jan. 7, 2018.
