Addressing a public awareness rally on cleanliness drive in Jamhore village, Tanuj first asked the attendees to raise their hands if they thought the value of their wife was less than that of Rs 12,000.

When a villager shouted that he does not have money to build one, the DM In a brazen show of insensitivity asked the man to sell his wife.

"If this is your mentality then go and sell your wife. Those who cannot build toilet should sell or auction his wife," he said.

"Is 12,000 more than anyone's wife's dignity? Who can let her wife get raped in return of Rs. 12000?" Tanuj said.

The Bihar government gives Rs 12,000 to a beneficiary to build toilets under the Shauchalay Nirman, Ghar Ka Sammaan - a scheme focussed on bringing an end to open defecation.
