Nagpur: Protesting against lack of public
toilets for women here, a group of activists encircled a men`s
public toilet near Railway Station to press for their demand
to construct public toilets for women.
Led by city lawyer Smita Singalkar, the women activists
also carried banners demanding women`s toilets at prominent
places in the city.
Singalkar in a release said today that there were only 69
public toilets for women in Nagpur while the existing toilets
were dirty and without proper drainage facilities.
Sahyog Trust, an NGO under whose banner the agitation was
conducted ahead of women`s day has said that Nagpur Municipal
Corporation which has 74 women corporators should initiate
measures to set up more public toilets for women.
