With the primary objective of the Central Government to make rural India open defection free, the District Water and Sanitation Committee ( DWSC) was constituted by the Government of Assam to implement Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) in all gaon panchyats across the Dibrugarh district with an aim to make Dibrugarh district open defection free.
“Oil India Limited has given Rs 1.80 crore for construction of 1,500 household toilets in Dibrugarh. We appeal the civil social society to come forward to make the mission successful because in many rural areas the people cannot build toilets on their own,” Madduri added.
