Bride who opted for toilet as wedding gift receives Rs.1 mn

HAPPENSswachA Maharashtra bride who was inspired by PM Modi’s ‘Swachch Bharat’ campaign opted for a toilet as her wedding gift from her family, because her in-laws house did not have an indoor toilet.

The young bride Chaitali Galakhe of Akola district is now to receive a cash award of Rs.10 lakhs from sanitation NGO Sulabh International for taking a stand on the issue. The mentor of the NGO Bindeshwar Pathak appreciated her step and saw it as an impact on PM Modi’s campaign that motivates common people towards the need for sanitation.

Over the past few years Sulabh has rewarded 6 such women who raised their voice for toilets in different parts of the country.
