Stressing on constructing individual toilets in houses, the Collector wanted the villagers not to go open defecation or urinals. She told the villagers not to believe superstitions like one should not construct toilet inside the house with a pregnant woman living and asked the officials and public representatives to create awareness among the people about using individual toilets. In fact, she said that it is better to construct a toilet inside the house, which relieves the women from going out for nature call during nights.
