"In the women's toilets with pay–and–use facility, PMC has recruited male attendants, which makes the women hesitate to use these toilets. Therefore, these toilets are never preferred," Gandhi said.
Deputy Municipal Commissioner Suresh Jagtap said, "We don't have vacant places where we can set up women's toilets."
He added that people do not allow them to construct toilets outside their homes. He said PMC officials were not allowed to build toilets on the footpaths, which compelled them to construct the facilities in public buildings or at the community level.
He agreed that there was a scarcity of women's toilets in the city.
