New Delhi, Sep 5 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said that he needed help from every school in the task of building toilets for children, and cleanliness should be part of efforts at character building.

Addressing students on Teachers' Day, Modi recalled his recent visit to Japan and said he was told by an Indian family that students and teachers there together clean and mop up toilets.

They said it was part of character building. How do we build national character, Modi said.

Referring to his Independence Day speech in which he referred to absence of toilets in some schools, particularly for the girls, Modi said it was a very important task.

I need help from every school. An atmosphere should be created, he said.
