NEW DELHI: On World Toilet Day, Union Home Minister Amit Shah lauded the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his efforts to provide the facility for each Indian household, saying it reflects a "sensitive government's commitment" towards the welfare of those neglected for years.

In a tweet, Shah said India had waited for decades to get a toilet in every household.

"On World Toilet Day, the nation thanks PM Narendra Modi for his relentless efforts towards Toilet for all. This mammoth achievement reflects a sensitive govt committed towards the welfare of those neglected for years," the Home Minister tweeted.

On the occasion of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on October 2 last year, Prime Minister Modi declared the country open defecation-free, claiming success for the government's initiative under which every household now apparently has access to a toilet.

The World Toilet Day is an official United Nations international observance day on November 19 to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.
