The 104-year-old Kunwar Bai from Kotabharri village of Dhamtari was praised by PM Modi who sold her goats for constructing toilets at her home.
To express his gratitude towards Kunwar Bai PM Modi touched her feet saying it is a big sign of changing India.
She was felicitated for her effort efforts to make her village open defecation, during the launch of 'Rurban Mission' at Kurrubhat village in the state's Naxal-hit Rajandgaon district on Sunday.
"An elderly woman of 104 years who stays in a remote village, does not watch TV or read papers, but the message of building toilets under clean India mission somehow reached her. She sold off her goats to build toilet at home and also encouraged others from the village to build," Modi said.
Kunwar Bai had sold-off her 8-10 goats to build two toilets at her home.
