“We broke the lock of the toilet after getting directions from the authorities. We don’t know who lock this toilet again and again. We have formed a team of women and no one has complained anything about this public toilet. Only Upasana Fernandes is experiencing problems and the complainant has not even paid a maintenance of this toilet,” he informed.
