Ghatkopar- This toilet is defying all the stereotypes. Reason being this is just not a toilet but it gives one a homely feel. It has washing machines and garden for the kids. This is been built by the efforts of Hindustan Unilever Limited and Pratha social organisation and BJP MLA Ram Kadam. Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar inaugurated the toilet. “This is first of its kind toilet in India which is built for slum dwellers. Our motto was to help poor women who cannot afford washing machines and who will be able to wash their clothes here. Also, they will be able to keep their children busy in the mini garden which is built on the top of the toilet. All these services are affordable,” said Ram Kadam, BJP MLA.
Residents have also welcomed the move. “I am very happy with this unique toilet. This is very useful for those who stay in the joint family who can come here and can have a bath,” said Parvati, resident. Ashwini Waikar second Parvati’s statement adding that these washing machines will save homemakers time.
Mumbai’s BJP president Ashish Shelar took a dig on BMC saying that the latter should replicate Ram Kadam and should provide such superior toilets to the public.
