Government gives 17.5 lakhs, Villagers say ‘No Thanks’

Residents of village in bijnor have turned down offer from government to build toilets. Instead they built the toilets on their own. They undertook good deed in the holy month of Ramadan. The Village is now declared as open defecation free.

Chief development officer (CDO) Indramani Tripathi and district panchayati raj officer Manish Kumar has released money in the accounts of pradhan and gram secretary. But the denied the money.

CDO said, "It may be the first village of the state whose residents refused to take a single paisa from the government to build toilets. It is a marvellous gesture. Residents of Mubarakpur Kala, and the pradhan, have set a noble and novel example for us."

“Two months ago, we held a meeting at our village. Everyone, including a large number of women, participated. The women in particular urged us about the need for a toilet in each house. Then officials came here and it was decided to release the money to our villagers. After we got the money, we held another meeting, and asked the villagers whether we should take government aid or not. We unanimously agreed to do it on our own as it was our duty. For those too poor to afford it, we decided to collect money and help them."
