In order to persuade the people not to defecate in the open and to educate people about hygiene and cleanliness, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to use ‘gandhigiri.’Special groups called ‘toka-taki’ will be formed in the rural areas which will use Gandhian methods to convince people to shun the habit of defecating in the open and use toilets instead. They will offer flowers to such people, garland them and draw their attention by beating drums. The government also plans to develop 3,500 model villages where no one will have to defecate in the open. The plan would also cover the villages affected by the dreaded encephalitis.
