same time last year, they were struggling to keep ants from biting their legs as they conducted their bodily functions in the open.
Most members of these families are labourers or engaged in self-help groups. These families dipped into their meagre savings and got a toilet constructed next to their homes in November, but the inordinately long wait for the money to be reimbursed by the government, under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, put them under financial strain.
An application was filed under RTI by an NGO seeking details of eligible beneficiaries under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
