What are required are more stringent measures to check this menace. Regular raids on the hideouts of these illegals need to be carried out. Most of them get into the country on a visit or tourist visa, and then violate all rules and regulations.

The most appropriate solution is to blacklist companies trading in such visas, since only such a deterrent action would put a check on these activities.

The increasing number of beggars and peddlers seen in every nook and corner of the city is an annoying feature for the residents. In fact, this problem is literally turning into a crisis of sorts, with these illegal elements disturbing the privacy of residents.

The problem needs an urgent attention of the authorities and action should be taken up on a war-footing.
