New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday paid tributes to Sulabh International founder and social activist Bindeshwar Pathak, who passed away earlier in the day, saying he was a “tireless crusader for improved sanitation”.
Pathak, a pioneer in building public toilets, died at AIIMS here due to a cardiac arrest on Tuesday, according to a close aide. He was 80.
“For many years, Bindeshwar Pathak who passed away earlier today, was a tireless crusader for improved sanitation. He made Sulabh a household name,” Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.
