Hyderabad: The nomadic Gangireddula community members on Wednesday staged dharna in front of the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad office on the Tank Bund demanding the authorities to exempt the community members from the purview of The Beggars’ Act.
Gangireddus seek exemption from Beggars’ Act
They also staged protest at the RTC Cross Roads parading their decorated bulls.
Expressing concern over the treatment meted out to them on a par with beggars, they claimed that they should not be treated like beggars and clarified that they earn livelihood parading the decorated bulls.
They sought to know from the authorities how can they sustain their livelihood if the members of their tribe are put behind the bars.
Only the time will tell whether the government shows them with an alternative source of livelihood? Or does it come to the rescue of the Gangireddu community persons?
