Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and noted filmstar Akshay Kumar today appealed to the people to make use of toilets as it was a hygienic practice. Tomar and Akshay arrived at Regva village in the district to promote cleanliness under Swachha Bharat Mission. Addressing villagers, Tomar said, “Even our villages will become clean and healthy if we develop habit of using toilets at home.”

He along with Akshay took out manure made of human excreta by getting down in a 3-feet deep specially designed pit attached to a toilet constructed at the residence of a villager, Radheshyam Gobru under MNREGA scheme. Tomar said the specially designed pits are capable of producing quality compost from human excreta. The manure is named as “Sone Khad.”

Under the scheme two pits are dug and initially first one is used and after it fills it is closed and later second one is used. Over a time period excreta in the pit turns into a compost. Akshay said “if people want to see their country clean and healthy, they have to begin from their home and family.” “To keep the country clean, it is important to keep our home free from dirt,” the Bollywood actor who is shooting the film “Toilet Ek Prem Katha, said.
