Government to train 3,000 beggars to sing paeans to Swachh Bharat, Beti Bachao, other campaigns on local trains


  • The government is planning to train some 3,000 beggars to sing much like the bards of yore about the signature plans like Beti Bachao Beti Padao, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and many other initiatives on local trains in major cities with a view to popularise them among urban commuter folk.
  • Drafting in beggars is the ministry of information and broadcasting’s latest idea to make the common man more aware of the government’s various schemes.
  • It is ministries “remuneration model”  as beggers would not need to beg any more.
