A 17 year old girl👧 from Nalgonda district in Telangana set herself on fire🔥 after failing to convince her parents to build a toilet in the house🏠. Kadaparthi Rekha, a junior college student🎓 poured kerosene and set herself alight🔥 last night. Reportedly, she was embarrassed😟 to use toilet in the open and bath in makeshift tents made of gunny bags👎. Her parents are farm labourers and hence were not in a financial capacity to build a toilet😕. Police👮 have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.
This news comes📰 amid PM Modi's Swacch Bharat Abhiyan which pitches for better sanitation and building toilets in the country.
