Manual scavenging and Protecting Villages.
"The latest Socio-Economic Caste Census data released in July 2015 revealed that in India 1,80,657 households are engaged in manual scavenging for their livelihood.
Again, a report presented in the Rajya Sabha estimated an appalling number of 22,237 people losing their lives every year due to manual scavenging in urban areas. Most of such deaths remain uncompensated."
