Dream of a Swachh Bharat will be realised by 125 crore Indians: PM

Prime Minister addressed the nation from Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi to mark the third anniversary of Swachh Bharat Mission.

Here’s what the PM said:

>> India faces challenges but that does not mean we run away from them. We will face them and work to overcome them.

>> The dream of a Swachh Bharat 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 @swachhbharat Mission. We see this in the cleanliness rankings, how organisations are working on cleanliness

>> When we initiated Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, we faced criticism. But three years later, now we are well aware of its progress

>> The @swachhbharat Mission is about both ‘Vyavastha’ (systems) and ‘Vichar’ (thought process and mindset)

>> I congratulate all those who supported and took part in the #SwachhataHiSeva movement. I keep saying- this is the start. We should continue the momentum built by the movement
