Sit at home first
Village council candidates in India should be allowed to
stand for election only if they can 'sit' at home, a
rural development minister says.
In a letter to all chief ministers, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh
said the toilet rule should be set out in law.
He said too many elected members "do not have toilet
facilities in their own houses and defecate in the open".
