Lata Devi Diwakar from Kanpur, inspired by PM Modi's Swachh Bharat campaign, sold her 'mangalsutra' to build a toilet at her home.

Through his Swachh Bharat campaign, PM Modi urged and encouraged people to build toilets at their homes. By doing so, he maintains that cleanliness is an important part of our living.

Commenting on the construction of the toilet, Lata Devi Diwakar said that toilets are a basic necessity. And compared to jewellery, it is nothing. "Since, I did not get any help from the government, I sold my mangalsutra for my toilet construction," said Lata.

"We used to face a lot of problems, finally decided to build the toilet after PM Narendra Modi's campaign inspired me," she added.
