Raipur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday touched the feet of a 104-year-old woman who sold her goats to construct toilet at her home in Dhamtari district of Chhattisgarh.

PM Modi, who was in Chhattisgarh to launch the ambitious Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Rurban (rural-urban) Mission, felicitated Kunwar Bai from Kotabharri village of Dhamtari and then touched her feet to seek blessings.

"An elderly woman of 104 years who stays in a remote village, does not watch TV or read papers, but the message of building toilets under clean India mission somehow reached her. She sold off her goats to build toilet at home and also encouraged others from the village to build," Modi said.

Kunwar Bai had sold-off her 8-10 goats to build two toilets at her home.

Subsequently, she started showing other villagers the toilets at her home while informing them about its importance. Now every home in the village has toilets.
