After studying the official papers of the Yogi Adityanath Government, we at Pardaphash can say with full conviction that UP government will have to build 44,000 toilets on a daily basis in order to make Uttar Pradesh open defecation free (ODF) by October 2 2018.
As you can pretty much imagine, this is going to be an herculean task in whatever way you look at. Until and unless, something very drastic happened within the hierarchy, this is not an attainable objective.
Although, Chief Secretary is giving direction after direction to district magistrates to speed up the work, but nothing substantial to report as of now. Some of the district magistrates does not even have 30 minutes in order to monitor the whole process.
Yogi Adityanath has already showed his desire of ‘smart villages’ on the lines of the smart cities campaign.
But desire has virtually no meaning when you lack the implementation side of thing. And initial signs are that bureaucracy is moving in his own gentle speed.
