Swatch Bharat Abhiyan and Clean India’ was one of the major dreams of Gandhiji. Cleanliness and sanitation was an integral part of Gandhiji. He enlightened people against untouchability and encouraged everyone to keep their surroundings clean.
Swatch Bharat Abhiyan
As per Gandhiji, “The ideal village will be so constructed as to lend itself to perfect sanitation.” He also guided that we should clean our toilets ourselves. Little changes came up but as the time kept on passing not much initiative was taken by the government. The population kept on increasing and because of congestion all over cleanliness became a major issue even in big cities also. After many decades Modiji became PM of India. He launched the drive of ‘Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan’ on 2nd October 2014 to fulfill the dream of Gandhiji’s ‘Clean India.”Three years later, six states, 214 districts, and more than 2 and a half lakh villages have achieved 100 percent sanitation thereby attaining the title of open defecation free.
‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ was a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi’s vision. He underlaid the role of women and children in the swachhta campaign, quoting a UNICEF sanitation report to labeling the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan as people’s movement. Due to this campaign even when we’re busy doing other things, we subconsciously look out for cleanliness. Therefore it is slowly becoming a natural instinct for us to be clean and want cleanliness. To encourage the children and to inculcate the habit of cleanliness many painting and essay writing competitions were organized as part of the ‘Swachhata Hi Seva campaign’.
The awards were also given to the citizens who came up with innovative ways to manage waste. PM Modi used the spectacles of Gandhiji an emblem for the Government of India’s sanitation campaign ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’.Now being the citizens of India it’s our and future generation’s duty to keep up this campaign continue by keeping our country clean. People who use to clean the septic tanks and sewers are being given better jobs and this work is conducted by the machines. The infrastructure is changing the dream of Gandhiji’s clean India has been extended in the present scenario.
