LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Hina Butt has called on the Punjab government to declare Lahore a beggar free city.

In a resolution submitted in the Punjab Assembly, the MPA demanded Lahore should also be declared a beggar-free city after Islamabad.

“I appeal to the government to Make Lahore a “Beggar Free City”. The children who are begging should be enrolled in school,” Hina Butt tweeted.

“And Appropriate action should be taken against the mafia or parents who send their kids for begging. I look forward for Lahore to be a Beggar free city soon,” she wrote on her Twitter account.

The lawmaker also called for arresting parents who were forcing their kids to beg on the streets of the provincial capital.
