Churchgate station loo stinks as much Montek Singh Ahluwalia’s Planning commission. While Churchgate Loo is worlds most used, Montek Singh Ahluwalia’s Planning commission is the most rotten. Both Churchgate and Planning commission have a common output “shit.’ Afterdefending Rs 28 as poverty line for poor Indian, Montek is out defending Rs 35 lakhs on renovating two toilets in Planning commission. He claims that 10 people can use it simultaneously. The official release says “Every day large number of people visit and work at Yojana Bhawan. More than 1,500 meetings are held every year and thousands of people use these public conveniences. A common complaint over the years was the poor quality of the toilets in the building—a complaint made not just by the ministers and foreign dignitaries who visit, but also by the staff and the journalists.”
At Churchgate station, every five minutes, about 200 men use the total of 37 urinals and six toilet cubicles. As per an RTI query, the Central Railway’s annual budget for constructing new toilets at its 73 suburban stations in 2008-09 was Rs 14 lakh.
Does Montek know how many foreign dignitaries visit Dharavi?
As per World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program, lack of toilets costs India more than $50 billion a year, mostly through premature deaths and hygiene-related diseases. India bears a higher cost than other Asian countries from inadequate collection of human excreta: $48 per person, compared with $9.30 per person in Vietnam, $16.80 in the Philippines, $28.60 in Indonesia and $32.40 in Cambodia.
