Swachch Bhaarat is a five-year campaign of Prime Minister
Sri Narendra Modi on 2nd October, 2014. Mr. Modi himself had cleaned a
road in Delhi to initiate the campaign in style. Modi talked
of its importance in many speeches. Gandhiji wished that
Indians learn hygiene and practice it. So Modi started it to realize
Aim of the Abhiyaan is to give every person access to
facilities (including toilets), solid
and liquid waste disposal systems, village cleanliness, and
2. Safe and
adequate drinking water supply.
The mission is already a few months old. Every Sunday
many people and celebrities are spending some time to clear the towns and
cities in their neighbourhoods. Swachch Bharat mission will take
up 4,000 towns for 5 years spending Rs 62,000 crore.
Bharat Abhiyaan mission works in the rural areas for Drinking Water
and Sanitation. They will make many household toilets
and public toilets. They will manage the municipal waste too.
We commit to "we don't pollute or litter, nor
we will allow anyone to litter". It is just 2 hours
a week for each person. For making India clean, garbage bins are
being donated for putting them at every street corner.
Schools too are taking part in this. Government of India
issued orders to various Boards of education. Then the boards have advised to
schools also. Toilets will be built in about 25,000 schools. Schools need
to keep their campuses clean and not litter around.
Children will become used to working with clean environment,
They are also educated regarding the various aspects of health, and
impacts of dirt and garbage on health. Many competitions on the program,
like painting, debate, slogan writing, and essay writing are being conducted.
So awareness is growing.
Progress and publicity:
Every Sunday we have the media showing a lot of video clips and
news on the subject of swachch Bharat. The target for the completion of mission
is the year 2019. Many more celebrities are being invited by he prime
minister for the publicity of this program.
The TV, newspapers and radio are already
spreading it. Many celebrities are officially selected as brand
money is allocated in the new budget of 2015 for this program. Tax concessions are also given.
Now, many state governments, for example AP and Telangana also have
started their own swach bharat programs.
Also, police have made some prisoners in jails to clean roads and some public
areas during the month of May. The idea
of cleanliness and the healthy consequence has caught up with the public. Many officials have cleaned up their office surroundings and their residential complexes of the dirt on some week ends.
We just have to keep our tables, rooms, houses, schools and
surroundings clean. If possible, we participate in the programs organized
nearby. That is all and Swach Bharat
succeeds. We follow it and tell others to follow it.
