Rural India now open-defecation free, will rid it of single use plastic by 2022: PM
AHMEDABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday set 2022 as the year by when to achieve the target of freeing India of single-use plastic. The PM also declared India open defecation free (ODF).
“Cleanliness, environment protection and safety of living beings were close to the Mahatma. Plastic poses a major threat to all three,” Modi said. He was addressing thousands of sarpanches and cleanliness champions at the launch of “Swachh Bharat Divas” to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
在纪念圣雄甘地诞辰150周年的“Swachh Bharat Divas”活动的启动仪式上，他向数千名五人长老会首脑和清洁卫士发表了讲话。莫迪称：“清洁、环境保护和生命安全与圣雄密切相关。塑料对这三个方面都构成了重大威胁。”
“Thus, we have to achieve the target of getting the country free of single-use plastic by 2022. In the past three weeks alone, 20,000 tons of plastic was collected as part of “Swachhata hi Sewa (Cleanliness is Service) initiative,” the PM said. “The use of plastic carry bags is also decreasing rapidly.”

I do not believe this conclusion. Indians and no open defalcation? Year ago, during my last India visit I had hard time to find a clean public urinal in Ahmedabad. Even Lal-Darwaja garden area public urinal was in trash condition with the clogged drain. Let start posting pictures on PM Modi website so he gets the facts.

What a mind boggling bluff possible only for the likes of Modi claiming rural India as defecation free ? How can he substantiate this over-the-top claim with solid evidence ? When incidents of open defecation is rampant and a sordid reality even in Metropolis, this claim flies in the face of facts and harsh realities on ground. Most of the toilets built through Swach Bharath are very poorly maintained and unusable.

sir, please take a survey travelling on a train from 6:30 am to 8:30 am, the degree of open defecation can be assessed

Just a few days back a couple of Dalit children were killed when they were openly defecating but somehow rural India is open defecation free. These guys have so much confidence that we will believe anything they say because of the vast majority gets swayed by hindutva!!!

Someone should take a video clip (simple, just use any smart phone) along Indian railway tracks in early morning or dusk and post it on YouTube for Modi to see. One picture worth thousand words; one video clip better than thousands pictures. Modi will enjoy it.

Not true...how can you eliminate open defecation without building enough toilet facilities even in cities, let alone villages.

He just returned from his luxurious American holidays, I guess he is talking about American rural. I just returned from Delhi, I saw men and women openly defecating on train tracks in the morning, one of them looked like our Feku.
