As per the Swatchh Bharat or Clean India Campaign started by the government, every individual in rural India is entitled to free public toilets. While this may be the most basic, fundamental step towards promoting good hygiene and ensuring safe livelihood, some villages in India are deprived of this right.

Cherang a small village in Kondagaon, Chattisgarh was supposed to get about 270 toilets and urinals. Even though the work has been going on for a year, according to the villagers, construction of about 70 toilets has been left incomplete. Not only did the authorities neglect their duties but falsely claimed the work to be done on the government website. 

Clean toilets are one of the most basic necessities and curbing the issue of open defecation is the need of the hour. Transparency and accountability of the authorities involved are required to make sure there's no injustice done towards anyone in any village in India. Sign this petition and stand up for the rights of these villagers so this crucial issue comes to light.
