Keep public toilets clean Print E-mail

ImageOnce again the public toilets in the capital city Kathmandu have come into the limelight but all for the bad reasons. The city lacks public toilets according to the population density, and still worse many existing toilets are in pitiable condition and lack the basic facilities of a public toilet. No wonder many public toilets emit odious stench due to lack of regular cleaning and maintenance.
 
It seems that the caretakers and authorities responsible for maintaining the public toilets are not doing their job properly despite charging high toilet fees from the users. The toilet operators do not care about the facilities and hygiene condition of the toilets. Similarly, it is the sheer negligence of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) for not monitoring the operation of the public toilets.
 
Therefore, the KMC should make its monitoring mechanism strong to ensure basic facilities and cleanliness in all the public toilets. In addition, the KMC should give priority to the construction of more hygienic public toilets in the city. And, for the toilet operators, they should realize their duties and pay proper attention to maintaining the basic facilities and cleanliness in the toilets.
