Create sanitary awareness, officials told

Addressing the meeting of officials here recently, ZP president said converting the farm yard manure pits into compost production units, construction of toilets at schools, anganwadi centres and cleaning of drainage should be compulsorily taken up in order to create awareness about maintaining cleanliness.

“Toilets in the rural areas get dilapidated  without proper maintenance. Students should be educated about the proper use of toilets and its maintenance in school,” she said.
A taskforce should be constituted to check open air defecation in Gram Panchayat limits. A fine of Rs 50 should be imposed on people defecating in the open and the fine amount should be credited to the funds of Toilets Maintenance Committee, she directed.
