The West Bengal government has set a target to construct toilets across all villages of the state by March 2019 to enable open defecation free (ODF) rural Bengal. Mr. Dibyendu Sarkar, Commissioner in the State’s Panchayat and Rural Development Department, has said that, by March 2019, his department plans to have toilets across all rural homes in the state.
Mr. Sarkar also said that Hooghly, East Midnapore and North 24 Parganas districts will be ODF by September this year, while the districts of Burdwan and South 24 Paraganas are working fast and hope to achieve Open Defection Free (ODF) by March 2017. He also said that, in 2015, Nadia district became the first to achieve ODF status in the country.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the state which has set the target to construct toilets across all villages of the state by March 2019?
2. Which district of WB has became the first to achieve the ODF status in the country?
