Man crusades on donkey to demand a public toilet

The Hindu, 03 April 2014


ALLAHABAD: An AAP worker who rode a donkey in this Uttar Pradesh city to demand a public toilet in lieu of his vote was booked for disturbing peace. Sulabh has now stepped in to fulfil his wish.


Patel Sunil Chaudhary, an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker, had put candidates in a quandary with his demand that they build a public toilet in lieu of his vote.


A resident of the Johnsonganj area in Allahabad city, he moved around riding a donkey and demanding construction of a public toilet in his area.


Politicians of the area are yet to respond to his demand.


The police sent Chaudhary behind bars after booking him for breach of peace.


Now, help has come from non-government organisation Sulabh International, which has assured him it would build a toilet.


Sulabh founder Bindeshwar Pathak told IANS Wednesday that they “will construct modern public toilet complex for the benefit of the people” as demanded by Chaudhary.
