Makeshift toilets irks plain belt, angry residents dismantle structures 31.8.2014 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
TURA, Aug 30: The flood affected plain belt has been at the receiving end of the PHE engineered makeshift toilets for temporary rehabilitation of the affected flood victims. Allegations of misappropriation and unusable public utilities due to the fault in the structure made residents of the plain belt furious with some even dismantling the structures as anger took over.
Photos of some of these structures show entry into the makeshift toilets would itself be a huge task as there is a huge gap and no link in between. Placed just above water, the use of these toilets would mean human refuse going back into the water, which the locals contend will surely invite diseases of a more serious nature once flood waters recede.
Another complaint made by the locals is the structure being placed too high for use and beats the purpose of them being built.
