NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi touched a 104-year-woman feet who sold her goats for constructing toilets at her home.

Modi felicitated Kunwar Bai from Kotabharri village of Dhamtari for her efforts to make her village open defecation free, during the launch of ‘Rurban Mission’ at Kurrubhat village in the state’s Naxal-hit Rajandgaon district on Sunday. Narendra Modi said it is a big sign of changing India.

“An elderly woman of 104 years who stays in a remote village, does not watch TV or read papers, but the message of building toilets under clean India mission somehow reached her. She sold off her goats to build toilet at home and also encouraged others from the village to build,” Modi said.

According to Time of Indai, Kunwar Bai had sold-off her 8-10 goats to build two toilets at her home.
