Who can empty a latrine pit? | Diane Coffey & Sangita Vyas | The Hindu

Media1 min read

The Secretary of the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation should be commended for setting a good example by emptying the decomposed waste from a twin-pit latrine in Warangal district. Diane and Sangita talk about why this was such an important step forward in this article. We hope that this effort will not stop with the Secretary and that it will kick-off many pit-emptying demonstrations by everyone — from celebrities to village leaders — across the country.
