The Tamil Nadu Assembly today unanimously adopted a resolution, banning manual scavanging and construction of dry latrines, to facilitate a nationwide ban on the obnoxious practice of human scavanging. The Government resolution, moved by Local Administration Minister K P Munusamy, was adopted unanimously after leaders of all political parties offered their support. The Tamil Nadu Resolution would help to amend section two of Article 252 of the Constitution for the effective ban on manual scavanging throughout the country, he said. Two or more states should adopt the resolution, banning human scavanging to help Parliament to amend the Constitution for the effective ban on human scavanging, the Minister said. The Centre had passed the Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993, banning manual scavanging but that was not enough to end the practice of human carrying human excreta. When a Public Interest Litigation was filed in the Madras High court in 2008 against manual scavanging, the court had passed orders, banning the entry of human beings into manholes and septic tanks in the State, except in specific circumstances.
