If Jairam Ramesh had used the word MOSQUE/CHURCH instead of TEMPLE in his remarks ,reputation of Ramesh would have surpassed even MODI's, and carried him all over India in a GOLDEN CHARIOT YATRA.
Jairam Ramesh could have told the same thing, without bringing the temples in his statement. Now,see the fun. People have forgotten the toilets and talking about the temples.
If this minister is afflicted with terminal cancer and without any hopes of it being treated,he has to turn to god and temples(only in india} to withstant the onslought of the decease.Mr.minister please be a little more considerate to age old temples and relegion of this ancient country.further if u consider temples in comparison with toilets please clean them and make it attractive,people (hindus) will be thankful to u
The stupidity of his comment shows that a person who should be tending a public TOILET, or be engaged in some similar occuption, is unfortunately a Minister in the central government..
toilets are even more important for the country than temples >>> In the interest of secularism, Jairam Ramesh should have said "temples, Mosques, Churches, Gurudwars".
Why single out Hindus - or is it that Muslims and Christians in India have proper toilets (provided by 50+ years of Congress rule) and only Hindus don't have proper sanitation?
