96 per cent of Swachh Bharat (Clean India Mission) money unspent in some Indian states

According to the Economic Times, some Indian states are having difficulty spending money allocated by the government sanitation programme.

Speaking of Jammu & Kashmir, it reports

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's much-talked-about sanitation programme, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA), is largely unimplemented in J&K, which is partly ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

In J&K, 6,351 schools lack toilets for girls and 8,098 lack toilets for boys, according to data from the state's Unified District Information System for Education (DISE Survey 2014-15).

More than 71 per cent of schools have no basins or taps to wash hands near toilets and urinals.
