The number of third-gender people asking for money at traffic signals seems to have drastically increased, as per local residents. The eunuchs can frequently be spotted at traffic signals to collect money. They are there at the signals, throughout the day.
Although, it is partly true that only a few amongst the whole gang are the real ones. The residents of the city strongly feel that there are many of them who are fake transgender. They can be seen abusing commuters at the traffic signals if they don’t get the money.
The Live Nagpur spoke to the citizens about their opinion about Trans genders on the signals.
Manisha Choudhary said “One of the major reasons the trans genders asking for money on the signals is that they don’t get employment. This leaves them with no money to spend. Only fake Trans genders abuse. All the big industries should reserve seats in their companies and hire them.”
Anand Shrivastav, said “The eunuchs should definitely be given an opportunity to work at various places. According to me, no major chaos is caused by them in the city, but definitely, the Nagpur City Police should take measures in order to rectify and minimize the inconvenience that is caused to the other fellow citizens.”
Monica Kale Gonnade, told “We often do not know whether they are genuine or not. But what I have witnessed is that they tend to get very aggressive if they don’t get the money. Such kind of behavior from their end is not safe for the citizens at all. Nagpur Police and the authorities should take some measures to stop this.”
Meanwhile, Sonali Dhoble Shrivastav said “They tend to say very emotional things while asking for money such as ‘Tera bhala hoga’, ‘Tumhara Joda Salamat Rahe’ and etc. Over time, they have become very demanding. I have myself come across one such incident in which the eunuchs had really high expectations of money and were very demanding. They should start working at various places.”
Udit Gonnade told “I have no odd feelings as such. Whenever they ask for money, I give them. On my commute, I witness them asking for money on various squares such as Shankar Nagar Square, Bajaj Nagar Square and etc. they should have proper job opportunities.”
