join the list very soon.

The Prime Minister informed that one lakh villages in different states of the country have turned ODF plus.

The Prime Minister said, those who do not care about the country, are not bothered about spoiling the present or future of the country. He said, such people can definitely talk big, but can never work with a big vision for water.
