Motihari: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday praised the State Government, Swachhagrahis and the people of Bihar for the cleanliness drive in the state. He claimed 8,50,000 toilets have been constructed in last one week in the state.”In the last one week, more than 8,50,000 toilets have been constructed in Bihar. This is a great achievement.

However, former deputy chief minister of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav does the maths and called it a ‘big goof-up’ by PM. The construction 8.5 lakh toilets in a week equate to 121,428 a day, 5,059 an hour and 84 a minute. 1.4 every second. Many on social media sites were skeptic about PM Modi’s claim.

So silly of us to have disbelieved and ridiculed him!”
