New Delhi: Snapping at a villager when he said that he was too poor to build a toilet, the District Magistrate of Aurangabad Kanwal Tanuj said if that is the case then sell your wife and auction the dignity of your home.
Mr Tanuj went on to say: “I will talk to you. If that is the case then sell your wife. If that is your mentality then go and auction the dignity of your home.” He also commented that people angled for advance payment under a government scheme for toilets and wasted the money.
The officer was talking about the “Ghar ka Samman” scheme, in which the state’s Nitish Kumar government grants an aid of Rs. 12,000 to people who want to build toilets.
