India has seen an ”unparalleled achievement” of providing hygienic toilets to crores of people in the last few years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday on the occasion of World Toilet Day.

The prime minister tweeted, ”On World Toilet Day, India strengthens its resolve of #Toilet4All. The last few years have seen an unparalleled achievement of providing hygienic toilets to crores of Indians. It has brought tremendous health benefits along with dignity, especially to our Nari Shakti.”
