The DRM office in Agra had been busy sprucing up railway stations and rounding up people for defecating and dirtying platforms for the past one month, he said.

Seeking to provide legal backing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet initiative, the government is drafting a law under which municipalities can punish those found spitting, urinating and throwing garbage in public places.
