Swatch Bharat Abhiyan (SBA) is one of the greatest movement by GoI, I rather
apprehend that why this was initiated ever since Independence and if it was done so
then the present generation instead of learning cleanliness would have inherited
clean India, any ways we have console ourself by saying “it’s never too late”. We all
welcome this initiative of the Govt., but unfortunately in my view Govt. will never be
able to achieve its goal with this initiative and I afraid that like other Govt. program
SBA may also stubbed in files and funds goes in drain of no use.
In my opinion Govt. should induct Solid Waste Management System (SWMS) and
Effluent Management / Treatment System (ETS) under the head banner of SBA, only
then we can get rid of dung, waste and badly smelling blocked nallas and can achieve
the goal of SBA mission. SWMS and ETS should not be limited to cities and towns
rather it has to be deeply injected in our society i.e. we have to implement these
program in villages and Punchayat level.
With the induction and implementation of SWMS and ETS our nation will be
benefited in the following manner and can save great amount of revenue.
1. Bio-degradable fertilizers will be generated in great amount and can be
used for farming and it can be sold in cheaper rate (than chemical
fertilizers) to farmers.
2. Good chunk of subsidy can be utilized for other fruitful program which is
given to chemical fertilizers.
3. We can also obtain clean fuel from these Bio-degradable plants which can
be used to generate electricity.
4. Our health will also be benefited, as we all know chemical fertilizer are
causing adverse effect to our health which we consuming indirectly
through the foods we intake.
5. This will save great amount of budget of Health Ministry which is being
spend regularly year after year in controlling the diseases like Malaria,
Typhoid, Dengue and many more.
6. Above all and most important this will generate good amount of job
opportunities for both technical and non-technical as well.
All these will need great financial support as we are planning to implement these in a
large scale i.e. through out India. Well to overcome this Govt. can route these program
through Public Private Partnership model (PPP). But please make it must that no
local contractor shall be awarded any of its work rather local people should be given
priority in construction and commissioning, only national/international grade
contractors like L & T, JUSCO, GMR, Shapoorji & Pallonji, DLF and etc may be awarded
the job to implement these schemes and that too after completing the job the
respective contractor has to obtain the best in class ISO certificate for their work
done. Please deploy management people in implementing these kind of mission that
too in such a large scale.
