"We have a target and we are working towards it. By 2022, we want India to be free from open defecation. In rural areas, 67 percent of the people defecate in the open," said Pankaj Jain, secretary, Ministry of Water Supply and Sanitation.

"The campaign will end today (Monday) in Dilli Haat, and will be moved to the inner circle in Connaught Place, central Delhi," an organiser said.
