Jharkhand – 13 crore households in Jharkhand need toilets inside their homes
This petition had 7 supporters
Over 13 crore households in the state don't have a toilet inside their homes according to latest Census data available from 2011.
Every year many girls skip school because of lack of toilet facilities. Recently, a 17-year-old committed suicide out of embarrassment of going to defecate in the fields.
According to a Union urban development ministry report, 6796 applications for individual toilets and 415 for community toilets have been sanctioned. But construction of toilets in urban areas is still to take off in the state. Also, Census 2011 confirmed that more than 32% urban households in the state still defecate in open as they do not access to toilets.
Let’s address the core sanitation issues in Jharkhand and let’s construct toilets that will help the state progress. Sign this petition to bring about the change!
