India's toilet issue remains despite promise

Bharatiya Janata Party's pledge to build five million toilets during first three months of its rule remains unfulfilled.

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will complete 100 days in office on Tuesday, however, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's promise to build five million toilets during the first three months of its rule has not materialised.

    The shortage is not just a rural problem but across the country - even in Mumbai, the financial capital, millions of people do not have access to safe, clean and private toilet facilities.

    Bindeshwar Pathak, the founder of Sulabh Shauchalaya, India's biggest toilet-building charity, says the country needs more to be done than the government's pledge.
