"I think open defecation is not healthy, and Prime Miniter Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat mission also says the same thing,” Pintu, a resident of Jharkhand's Ramgarh district told ANI.

He added that he gifted the toilet to his sister and he wanted more people to notice that and do the same.

Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu launched the Swachh Survekshan 2017 earlier in August and urged the people to participate in the national campaign.

Building toilets in rural India is one of PM Modi's maiden projects under the Swachha Bharat Mission. The campaign aims to achieve defecation free India till 2019, reported Deccan Chronicle. During the first 11 months of 2015-16, more than 1.09 crore toilets were built across the country as part of the government's ambitious project, the report said.
