Let us tell you that a beggar named Raju was living by begging at the railway station of Bettiah city of Bihar, but people refused to give alms saying that there was no cash. After this, Raju bought a smart phone by collecting money and then got the QR code made. Now Raju begs digitally. Recently, his video also became very viral on social media.
