By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM : VK Prasanth, MLA, on Monday geotagged a public toilet facility at the women-friendly bus waiting shed at Kazhakoottam junction, thereby kickstarting the mammoth exercise of mapping all public toilets in the country.
The public toilet was analysed based on the parameters of accessibility, visibility, hygiene and security.
While the MLA rated five out of five for visibility and accessibility, hygiene and security scored four points each.
The country-wide mapping is in continuation with what the organisation initiated in the capital two years ago where they mapped over 120 public toilets in the city.
Through the ‘iamhere’ campaign, the firm reaches out to people to take part in mapping the toilets via the Kakkooos app which can be downloaded from PlayStore.
