Sulabh to felicitate woman who fought for toilet at home in MP
Bhopal: Sulabh International, known for its work in the field of sanitation, today announced an award of Rs two lakh for a Dalit woman from Madhya Pradesh`s Dewas district who walked out of her matrimonial home because it did not have a toilet.
Savita returned to her husband`s house in Mundlana village few days ago, after staying with her parents for about two years, as her husband Dev Karan Malviya fulfilled her demand and got a toilet constructed in his house.
Dr Bindeshwar Pathak, founder of Sulabh movement, today announced that his NGO would felicitate Savita by presenting her a cheque of Rs two lakh at a function in the village soon.
Sulabh will also request her to work as `sanitation motivator` to promote the message of sanitation in the area, the NGO said.
After walking out of husband`s house with her two children, Savita moved the court seeking maintenance from him. During a mediation by the court, the husband agreed to build her a toilet, which led to reconciliation between the two.
After learning about the case, Sulabh too constructed a toilet for her.
Earlier, the NGO had felicitated Anita Narre of Betul district in Madhya Pradesh for insisting that her matrimonial house have a toilet.
