Swachh Bharat is the dream of 125 crore Indians, says Narendra Modi

On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi marked the third anniversary of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Here are the highlights of his speech at Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi:

  • The dream of a Swachh Bharat (clean India) will be realised by 125 crore Indians, not a select group of leaders or officials
  • India has accepted the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan. The movement has become a people’s movement due to the ‘Siddhi’ of Swachhagrahis
  • A positive spirit of competition has been created due to this mission. We see this in the cleanliness rankings, how organisations are working on cleanliness.
  • The mission is about both ‘Vyavastha’ (systems) and ‘Vichar’ (thought process and mindset).
  • I congratulate all those who supported and took part in the Swachhata Hi Seva movement. I keep saying – this is the start. We should continue the momentum built by the movement
  • Society, media supported Clean India. Should introspect if campaign is not receiving desired momentum, notwithstanding this support
  • We should not politicise issues such as cleanliness and hygiene
  • You have to see cleanliness from the prism of women
