Inspired By The ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’, Man Sells Goat And Wife’s Ornaments To Build Toilet

Published on 10 June, 2016 at 5:19 pm By

In Dungarpur, Rajasthan, a daily wage laborer sold one of his seven goats and mortgaged his wife’s silver anklet to raise Rs 9,000 to build a toilet, after social workers campaigning for the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ motivated him about the importance of hygiene and the risks of open defecation.

The activists had promised to give him Rs 12,000 but Kantilal Roat’s family received only the first two instalments of Rs 4,000 each due to which the construction was stopped in between. Selling his goat fetched him Rs 5,000 and by further selling his wife’s anklet, he gained Rs 4000 more.

For him, the hardships that his two daughters-in-law faced while defecating in the open were more important than materialistic things like ornaments. Dungarpur municipal corporation chairman KK Gupta congratulated the family for the feat and have Rs 4,000 to get the anklet back.

People also acknowledged his brave move.
