“We are not against the sex workers in Ganga Jamuna. But the illegal business, frequent brawls, use of abusive language cause problems for the residents in the locality”, said Vandana Yengatwar, Corporator of Prabhag 22.
She stated that she had held a discussion with the Mayor. Municipal Corporation is ready to provide them space in Kalamna, construct houses. They can carry out their business in their rooms peacefully. The anti-social elements working as pimps or their clients, pose serious threats to the passersby or residents in the locality. During police raids, they enter any residence to avoid arrest, which is another problem.
Yengatwar also opposed pushing young girls into prostitution. The young girls are coerced and forced into the profession, injected medicines for hormonal changes, which is inhuman. It leaves the wrong impact on young ones in the adjoining localities. She emphasized the need for their rehabilitation. She also denied that action by police is being taken by land grabbers.
