Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, felicitated the 104-year old lady who dreams and works for an open defecation free village.

Kunwar Bai from Kotabharri village of Dhamtari has left everyone speechless with her valorous act; sold her goats to build a toilet in her home.

PM Modi felicitated Kunwar Bai, during the launch of ‘Rurban Mission’ at Kurrubhat village in the state’s Naxal-hit Rajandgaon district today for her act to make her village open defecation free.

Inspite of no access to the news, the message of constructing toilets as a part of the Clean India Mission somehow reached her. In order to take a first step towards this mission she sold off her 8 -10 goats and built two toilets in her house. In order to emphasise the relevance of her step, she also showed these to all the villagers and explained its importance throughout the village.

It is due to her initiative that every house in the village has a toilet today, which is a major change for the country. PM Modi said, “The country is changing. It seems when a woman at a remote village makes efforts to fulfill dream of clean India mission, she is an inspiration for everyone, especially youths.”

The Prime Minister also told the media to not only cover the story but also spread the story of this woman across the country.

Not all acts need the grandeur, a simple but effective act can cause a tremendous change and we hope our country finds many such Kunwar Bais who strive towards a – Better and Cleaner India.
