Long way to go for India to achieve ‘open defecation free’ tag

Description

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday declared the country of 1.3 billion people free of open defecation. But despite huge progress, experts have expressed scepticism about the claim, saying millions still lack access to a toilet, and that because of old habits many of the new facilities are not being used.
