Expected that you will bring it up - there is a difference - a nuance., and will address the kudos part which I am sure you will vehemently protest
Jairam is in Government and minister for Rural Development, nobody stopped him from *actually* implementing it all over India - particularly in Rural areas. His comparison to Hindu temples was unnecessary and useless.
Here Modi was answering his priorities as a hindutvawadi - with a sub-text on the Ram temple in Ayodhya. As a hindutvawadi - he clearly said what his priorities are.
Here is the nuance - if you go and call an African-American say "Bro", "niggah", "homo" - it is rightly offensive and racist. However if an African-American is calling another one the same - the context in which it is said is important and not at all necessarily offensive.
Talking about Kudos - Jairam Ramesh does not get any - zilch - none on the context of better toilet facility. It is his job and duty to ensure rural development - period.
Modi - with his development agenda - gets the kudos - since his 24x7 electricity and now almost continuous water supply (some places 4 hour min.) he is solving the "toilet" problem. Toto is planning to set up big factory in Gujarat and there is a reason - in 2005 itself I saw separate hot/cold water systems., jacuzzi bath tubs as aspirational items in C-Tier and D-Tier towns in Gujarat. I am seeing more of it, there is slow but marked improvement in sanitation facilities in Gujarat - compared to several places.
Heck - just go 80 Km out of Hyderabad and you will be lucky to find a potable drinking water source easily.
