Madhya Pradesh To Concentrate On Better Rural Hygiene

Intensifying a drive for better hygiene at rural levels, the Madhya Pradesh government has started to act on its threats against panchayat leaders who fail to do away// with the unhealthy system of dry toilets.

"The act also aims to promote sanitation and discourage the practice of women going to answer nature's call out in the open," he added.

Statistics reveal that close to 30 million people in rural areas in India suffer from sanitation-related diseases. About 0.4 to 0.5 million children die of diarrhoea alone each year, with most d
