Kushinagar: District Magistrate of Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh on Monday said that he has authorised the construction of toilets in the village.

This comes after six newly-wed women in Kushinagar left their husband's homes due to lack of toilets. Neelam, Kalawati, Shakina, Niranjan, Gudiya and Sita, registered their protest against their husband and in-laws after finding that there were no toilet in their houses, said a local social worker Asha Parveen, adding that they are adamant not to go back until toilets are built there.

Founder of Sulabh International, an NGO working in the field of sanitation, Bindeshwar Pathak, said toilets will be constructed in the houses of the in-laws of all these six women. Pathak termed the step taken by the women as bold and extraordinary.

"Such kind of rising incidents clearly show the changing mindset of girls over toilets. Now everybody realises the importance of toilets," he said.

Toilets will be constructed by Sulabh International free of cost without any delay so that the women can return to their in-laws' place soon, he said. "They will also be honoured for their bold stand," Pathak said.
