Dimapur, March 27

Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) said The Indian Express report of Nagaland having constructed zero number of toilets is shocking. The figures put out by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation whereby Nagaland and Goa have constructed zero toilets out of 4.3 million toilets countrywide during the financial year 2014-15 needs to be thoroughly probed, ACUT said in a press release. “The PHED department should clarify as to how much amount was sanctioned for this Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) during the financial year 2014-15; and if sanctioned as per the report, why there was no construction of even a single toilet?” it asked. ACAUT then demanded that the names of the contractors and the suppliers of the commodes be made public.
“The report in national media is very serious since this is 100% non-implementation of the scheme with high possibility of large scale misappropriation of funds. The ACAUT is in the know that commodes apparently for such schemes have already been procured for which the implementing department, the PHED needs to make immediate clarification,” it added.
