Giving a clear and loud message against open defecation and supporting Swachh Bharat Mission, some brothers in Ajmer and Udaipur have gifted Toilets to their sisters.
35-year-old Prem Chand Sharma constructed a toilet in the house of one of his married sisters in Rohini village of Nagaur.
He has also pledged to build toilets for his remaining six sisters in the coming year.
Sharma told TOI, “I am inspired by the Swachh Bharat Mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Nagaur district collector has encouraged villagers to construct toilets. We also got a grant of Rs 12,000 to construct these toilets. I really felt bad watching my sisters going to fields for defecation. In our village, women wait for dawn to go to the fields. I have gifted a toilet to one of my married sisters and will gift other sister by next year.”
“Seven persons gave their consent and signed a commitment letter that they will free their sisters from the miseries of open defecation,” said Udaipur collector Rohit Gupta.
Ladies in rural areas face a lot of difficult daily as they don’t have Toilets in their own house and to relieve themselves they have go in open. So what could be better Rakhi gift for any sister other than this?
Every Indian must take a step and give his own contribution by encouraging the people to build toilets. We are encouraging but ARE YOU?
