Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) was launched on 2nd October 2014 by Narendra Modi,  the Prime Minister of India on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s 145th birth anniversary. The main objectives of the mission are:

  1. Construct individual, cluster and community toilets.
  2. Eliminate or reduce open defecation.
  3. Construct latrines and work towards establishing an accountable mechanism of monitoring latrine use.
  4. Create public awareness about the drawback of open defecation and promotion of latrine use.
  5. Change people’s mindset towards proper sanitation use.
  6. Keep villages clean.
  7. Ensure solid and liquid waste management through Gram Panchayats.
  8. Lay water pipelines in all villages by 2019.

The mission was embarked into action in 2015. According to government expenditure data, the Central Government had spent 89% of its annual budget by early January 2017. The measure of success has been moved from mere construction of toilets to achieving  ‘’Open Defecation Free” status and village after village has been busy meeting the goal. Already 200,000 toilets have been constructed and Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, and Sikkim have been declared as Open Defecation Free states. In other states, toilet construction activities are in full swing. But in some states like Assam, the mission seems to lag behind and in addition to that, it has been alleged that the standard of toilets built in Assam is not up to the government standard. Some officials are embezzling the government fund. The contractors, availing the corruption of some officials, have been withdrawing their payments without having their tasks completed. On the other hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi says in a lecture, “A clean India would be the best tribute India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th  birth anniversary.’’

After all the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a very praiseworthy step taken by the Modi Government and if the mission can reach its objectives then India would go a long step ahead toward its advancement. 0 0 0.
