Puducherry Government offers free tickets of Rajinikanth's 'Kabali' to residents who build toilets
Puducherry Government has come up with a unique scheme to make the residents of Sellipet panchayat know the importance of good hygiene, and build toilets in their homes.

The government is en-cashing the fame of south superstar Rajinikanth, and is offering free tickets for his most-awaited movie of the year, 'Kabali', to those who will build toilets in their houses. The government announced this scheme, soon after Lt Governor Kiran Bedi requested Rajinikanth to come on board as the Brand Ambassador of the Swachh Bharat scheme in Puducherry.

Puducherry government is trying its best to spread the message of Swatchh Bharat, as earlier also the government had taken many initiatives like advertising across various local and regional media channels to spread the message of a clean India and has also held competitions with interesting prizes for winners.

However, this time Sellipet panchayat was specifically chosen because a recent survey said that out of 772 household in the village of Sellipet, 447 houses didn't have toilets.

P Parthiban, DRDA Project Director confirmed the news saying, "We announced in Sellipet panchayat that those who build toilets in their homes will get Kabali tickets free. Families living in 447 households defecate in the open. This is an incentive for them. We have also launched awareness programmes about healthy and hygienic practices," as reported by TOI.

P Jawahar, Puducherry Collector said, "We have been sensitizing people on hygienic lifestyle and habits. We have also invited voluntary organizations to come forward and assist the government in various projects particularly the Swachh Bharat scheme."
