Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

A man who has claimed he can't af­ford to buy a toi­let has been told to sell his wife. An In­dian of­fi­cial has re­port­edly urged vil­lagers who are un­able to raise enough cash to build loos to sell their spouses. Kan­wal Tanuj, a mag­is­trate from the district of Bi­har, called for those gath­ered to obey the cam­paign's san­i­ta­tion stan­dards in or­der to safe­guard the dig­nity of women, ac­cord­ing to the In­dian Ex­press. He said: "Save the dig­nity of your women if you can. How poor are you?" But when a man said he was too poor, he replied: "If that is the case then go and sell your wife. If this is the men­tal­ity you have then go and sell your wife. So many peo­ple talk about ad­vance pay­ment, they get ad­vance and then spend it on use­less things." The Clean In­dia Mis­sion - known for­merly as the Swach Bharat Ab­hiyan - is a scheme launched by the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia to clean the coun­try's 4,041 statu­tory cities and towns.
