Rohini Sindhuri

The ministry of drinking water and sanitation is in the process of identifying the best movers of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, district collectors who are relentlessly using innovating ideas and persistent ways to drive home the message of sanitation in the country’s darkest districts. Rohini Sindhuri has identified by the Centre as exemplary performers in executing Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Sindhuri, the CEO of Mandya Zila Panchayat, Swachh Bharat was all about convincing people in the sugar belt that “sugar cane crops were not a natural barrier to open defecation”.”In Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, the sarpanch can tell villagers he won’t step into houses without toilets and use that to encourage toilet usage but these tricks won’t work in most places in South India. These places are more individualistic,” said Sindhuri, talking passionately about her efforts to strengthen sanitation programmes in Mandya in Karnataka. Sindhuri said she sells the idea of toilets to women without linking them to hygiene but to self-respect and necessity.”Gram panchayats were totally against the idea of toilets. Last year a woman was attacked by a dog, and a minor girl raped in this area when they ventured out at night to defecate. No woman wants to put her life to multiple risks every day,” she said.Watch the below video (in Kannada)
