No Toilet No Bride Indian Government New Campaign

October 23, 2012 by  

No Toilet No Bride Indian Government New Campaign, The comments were made by India’s controversial rural development minister, Jairam Ramesh, who recently angered Hindus by pointing out there were more temples than lavatories for the country’s 1.2 billion people. In a speech to villagers in Rajasthan, he said it wasn’t enough for families to check astrological charts to decide if a young man is suitable, they should also inspect his closet.

“You consult astrologers about rahu-ketu (the alignment of sun and moon) before getting married. You should also look whether there is a toilet in your groom’s home before you decide don’t get married in a house where there is no toilet,” he warned.

His comments are part of a series of speeches and schemes to increase the number of indoor lavatories in a country where more have a mobile phone than a lavatory.

More than 900 million – 75 per cent of the population – has a mobile phone subscription in India, while only half of its households have a lavatory, according to last year’s census. Only 11 per cent of homes have a lavatory connected to the sewerage system.
