Kanpur woman sells mangalsutra to build toilet, credits PM Modi for inspiration

ANI  |  Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh) [India] 

Inspired by Prime Minister's Swachh Abhiyan, a resident of Vidhnu village in district has built a toilet by selling her 'mangalsutra'.

Latha Diwakar has become an inspiration in the region for taking on her husband aggressively after disclosing that she had sold her mangalsutra for Rs. 17,000 to complete her goal.

Latha's husband, Baburam always gave an excuse that money should be spent on their daughter's marriage rather than on building a toilet.

Diwakar said she also sold her calf as she discovered that the cost of building a toilet is Rs. 25,000.

Babulal finally caved in after realising the importance of sanitation and readily supported his wife.
