Mahatma Gandhi 151st Birth Anniversary 2020: Clean India, Green India
Clean India, green India this is what we dream about India! Like every year this year also we pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 151st birth anniversary in 2020. There is no doubt that the Prime Minister of India- Narendra Modi has launched such a great mission " Swachh Bharat Mission" on 2nd October 2014 with a motive to accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put the focus on sanitation. Furthermore, Swachh Bharat Mission was launched in a country as a national movement
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan
It is the movement towards sanitation and cleanliness following which the PM urged people to fulfill Mahatma Gandhi's dream of a clean and hygienic India. According to the report, Clean Indian Mission is a national level campaign by the Government of India covering 4041 statutory towns to clean the streets, roads, and infrastructure of the country.
India's biggest campaign by PM Narendra Modi
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is India's biggest campaign of cleanliness drive where around 3 million government employees and schools and college students of India participated in this event. Cleanliness and Hygiene are not just for our things or our own homes, we have to make a point to keep our environmental factors clean any place we go to. Clean India Mission centers around the annihilation of open crap everywhere on the nation and endeavors have been made for the equivalent.
Why Swachh Bharat Abhiyan?
In ancient times, Mahatma Gandhi had rightly said, Sanitation is more important than Independence. Gandhi Ji was well aware of the pathetic situation of India, especially rural people. At that time, he dreamt of a clean India where he emphasized cleanliness and sanitation as an integral part of living. As per the analysis, we have completed 75 years of independence day and we have only about 30% of the rural household with access to toilets.
