A Dalit man in Odisha's Kendrapara district has been living in a toilet allotted to him under the Centre's flagship programme, Swachh Bharat Mission, after cyclone 'Fani' razed his kutcha house to the ground, officials said.
The cyclone hit the district on May 3.
Rendered homeless, Khirod Jena (58), a landless daily wage earner in Raghudeipur village, has been living in 7 feet x 6 feet toilet along with the spouse and two grown-up daughters.
"The cyclone destroyed my house. But the pucca toilet was saved. I have nowhere to go. The toilet allotted to me two years back has become by shelter house. I do not know how long we will be staying here," Jena said.
