Manpower can be won on any challenge
It is also very important for me personally to be given this award on the 150 birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. This is a proof that if the manpower of 130 crore people, if it is mobilized to fulfill any one resolution, then any challenge can be won. On this occasion, PM said that this honor is dedicated to those Indians Who transformed the Swachh Bharat Mission into a mass movement, who started making cleanliness a top priority in their daily lives.
Poor and women benefit from cleanliness campaign
PM Modi said that recently in any country, such a campaign was not heard and seen. This campaign was started by our government, but the command was taken by the people themselves. I believe that the success of the Swachh Bharat Mission is above any figure. If this mission provided the most benefit to anyone, it would be for the poor of the country, the women of the country.
PM Modi said – We considered the world as our family
On this occasion, PM said that India is ready to share its experience and expertise with cleanliness with other countries of the world. He said that I am also happy with this contribution of India to the world because we have considered the world as our family. For thousands of years we have been taught that the liberal Charitanam tu Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. That is, for the big-minded, for the big-hearted, the whole earth is a family.
India is also working fast on other big missions
The PM said that India is close to achieving its goal of cleanliness, but India is also working fast on other big missions. He said that a campaign to promote fitness and preventive healthcare is going on through the Fit India Movement. The PM said that under the Water Life Mission our focus is on water conservation and recycling so that every Indian gets adequate and clean water.
