GURGAON: Sulabh International founder and chief Bindeshwar Pathak has announced that an open defecation-free (ODF) village in Mewat will be named after the US President Donald Trump.
Sulabh believes the move will help draw the attention of the world towards India’s cleanliness campaign. The organisation is currently working in some villages of Mewat to make them ODF, one of which will be named after Trump. “We have chosen the area (Mewat), but the village to be named after Trump will be decided in the next few days,” said Pathak over phone from the US, adding he will visit Mewat to interact with villagers after he returns to India in the next few days, during which, a village will be chosen for adoption. Pathak made the announcement at a community event organised in the suburbs of Washington DC.
“The Indian government is trying to rid the country of open defecation. Our organisation is also working in this direction. We urge the global community to help us realise the goal of sanitation in India,” he said, adding that corporates can adopt a village, block or taluka as part of the campaign.
