Nazarbayev told a conference on modernization in the country's capital, Astana, he would like to see arrests and punishments for people caught leaving their gum out on the streets, RIA Novosti reported Wednesday.
"People stick chewing gum on underpasses. We should apprehend them, take fingerprints and draw up arrest reports … with administrative punishment, fines and three-day custody," Nazarbayev said, adding he believes such a move would serve as a deterrent against more serious crimes.
