Loo-king for the right man to marry

Tamil Nesan reported that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has called upon the people not to allow their daughters to be married to men living in homes that do not have toilets in the house.

Speaking at a function, Nitish said that the absence of toilets affected women much more, especially when they have to answer the call of nature in the open.

He said having toilets in the house will not only mitigate health problems but also protect the dignity of women.

Nitish said that the state government had been providing assistance of Rs10,000 (S$204) to each family for construction of toilets.
