MP want to remove ‘bachelors’ from Salmiya block 13
MP Saleh Ashour called for immediately expelling all single men from block 13 of Salmiya because of the “danger” they pose to Kuwaiti families in the area and for putting public services under pressure.
The lawmaker called on the government to form a committee from various ministries and government agencies to draw a plan for evicting them from the residential area. He said the presence of “unmarried” men in the area has created numerous problems for residents and contributed to the deterioration in the standard of public services in the area.
Ashour cited crowding at the area’s public clinic, traffic congestion and substandard cleaning services, in addition to social and security problems facing residents resulting from the presence of “bachelors”. The lawmaker said the presence of bachelors in the area is a violation of the law and several official statements stating that evicting single men from residential areas is in
the interest of the public.
Ashour urged authorities to immediately start ordering bachelors to leave the area and cut electricity supply from houses leased to single men. The Municipality and interior ministry agencies have in the past launched campaigns to evict single expatriates living in so-called model areas mostly inhabited by Kuwaitis.
