We would professionally inspect this project but they would have to manage it. It is very necessary water and toilet goes together ,we need them it is very necessary even Tefle East needs modern toilet because it is expanding".

Sunil Lalvani, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Project Maji declared that his outfit hopes to erect one million mechanized drinking water to deprived communities in the country.
