PM Modi says 8.5 lakh toilets built in a week in Bihar; Tejashwi Yadav claims it 'false' and gives the maths class on Twitter

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that in Bihar, nearby 8.5 lakh toilets were constructed in Bihar in just seven days. In no time the former deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav jumped into the matter and quizzed the PM Modi and called it big 'goof-up'. Tejashwi on Tuesday asked PM Modi if it is possible to build 5059 toilets every house in Bihar.

Tejashwi Yadav took Twitter and posted, "PM claimed 8.50 Lacs toilets made just in a week in Bihar.
1 week= 7 Days
1 Day= 24 Hrs
7 Days= 168 Hrs
1 Hour= 60 Mins
So
850000%168=5059 Toilets per Hr
5059/60 = 84.31 Toilets per min
Such a big goof-up from PM Sahab. I believe even CM Bihar won’t agree with such false claims."

 

The RJD leader Tejashwi's statement came after the PM Modi congratulated the Nitish Kumar government of Bihar state for leading the Swachh Bharat Mission in India successfully.

"In the past one week, over 8.5 lakh toilets have been constructed in Bihar and that is not an easy task to do. I congratulate Nitish Kumar government and all 'swachhagrahis' for their effort," Modi said while addressing nearby 20,000 'swachhagrahis' (volunteers of cleanliness movement) at the concluding ceremony of the Champaran Satyagraha centenary celebrations on Tuesday.

"I am proud of the fact that Bihar has shown its leadership abilities in this journey from Satyagraha to Swachhgraha," Modi said.

The PM also said that “the eleven projects worth over Rs 3,000 crore have been sanctioned in Bihar to stop the flow of dirty and untreated water from homes and factories to the Ganga.”

The development in Bihar under Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi's leadership has boosted the morale of the people, the PM said. "I salute the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi present inside every individual. Those who say that history does not repeat itself, should come here and take a look at the mass movement," he added.
