06 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: Lt Governor Kiran Bedi  urged residents and other sections of people to ensure there was no open defecation as the government was keen on enabling construction of toilets in households in the Union Territory.

Declaring Velrampet Lake, a major waterbody in Mudaliarpet Assembly segment here, as an open defecation free zone, she said the government was implementing the Swachch Bharat and Swachch Puducherry schemes on a fast track.

It is the initiative of Puducherry government to ensure that the whole Union Territory becomes open defecation free by October 2, 2017.

The lake and the neighbourhood areas have been given a facelift and it is now an open defecation free zone.

The Union Territory government has spent Rs 75 lakh to spruce up the vast stretch of the lake.

Stating that Swachch Bharat Abhiyan was being implemented fast,he said each of the 50,000 households lacking toilets would have them through a Rs 120 crore project, for which funds have been earmarked by the Centre.

Each household would be given subsidies to construct the toilets so that Puducherry and its outlying regions of Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam became open defecation free by October 2, 2017.
