Ranchi: A man in Jharkhand refused to visit the house of his in-laws as there is no toilet there. Pramod Kumar, a resident of Bhuli in Jharkhand`s Dhanbad district, got married to a girl of Jogtiyabad village in Girididh district on April 15 this year. 

He wanted to answer nature's call the morning after his marriage. When he asked where the toilet was, his in-laws gave him a pot and showed him the way to the field. 

This incident left him embarrassed.

After returning home, Pramod put a blanket ban on his wife's visit to his in-laws house. He also put a condition that he would visit only after a toilet was constructed. 

"My son-in-law is unhappy with us as there is no toilet in our house. He has refused to come to our house till a toilet is constructed. I have made up my mind to construct a toilet so that he can come to my house," Pramod's father-in-law Jageshwar Paswan said.

The Jharkhand government is working to make the state Open Defecation Free (ODF) by 2018.
