You might have heard about the slogan of Swachh Bharat campaign which says your home is not complete without a toilet. But a man has turned his toilet as his home in Rourkela after failing to get assistance from administration for his damaged house.
It may sound weird, but it’s true. Chotu Rautia’s repeated requests for a house under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) fell onto deaf ears from a long time, which is why the 50-year-old daily wage laborer decided to live in the 4 feet x 5 feet toilet that he managed to get under another government scheme, which is of course Swachh Bharat Yojana.
“I haven’t conducted a detailed inquiry but I spoke to him, he is not staying in the toilet but outside,” BDO Lathikata told ANI.
After the news comes out, Sundargarh collector Vineet Bhardwaj took the action and said that the administration will make it confirm that Chotu Rautia will get a house under Biju Pakka Ghar Yoajana.
