In the letter, Lohani has said he has received numerous complaints regarding the poor condition of the toilets, adding that keeping those clean was a part of the Swachh Bharat Mission. “The railways must ensure that the toilets of all the stations are maintained, upgraded to proper conditions of cleanliness, including ensuring sufficient lighting, doors, corridors, water supply, proper flooring, fittings and fixtures, and are made ready by the end of September, 2018 to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation,” the letter says. Lohani has also said cleanliness of toilets should be made a part of the station-cleaning contracts. The letter says that toilets should be constructed by September 30 at those stations that do not have such facilities and an action plan from all the zonal railways should be sent to him within the next seven days.
