Mayor plans Pink toilets in the city

After the introduction of reserved parking system and pink autos for women, Mayor R Sampath Raj plans to study about setting up pink toilets for women in the city, similar to Delhi model.

"I cannot say that we are introducing the pink toilets now. There are space constraints in the city. There is a plan and we will be studying about it. We will see what to do in the coming days," said Mayor R Sampath Raj.

When asked why is the corporation planning the pink toilets when it finds it difficult to maintain the existing public toilets, he said: "We are just planning to look at the proposed idea. It is for the betterment of women. The maintenance and other challenges come only after the implementation of the project," said Raj.
