We all know the fact “Cleanliness lies next to godliness”, it is extremely important for us to keep ourselves and our environment clean to live a healthy life. Our father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi himself empathized on the needs of cleanliness and made people aware of personal hygiene as well as environmental cleanliness. In his memory our current Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi brought into existence a very necessary drive under the name of “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was a nation-wide observance of a tenure of five years from 2014-2019 under our honorable prime minister to ensure the basic hygiene of India. Its main focus was the villages of India where personal hygiene lacked in a greater extent as there were no existence of toilets and this drive by the government ensured that every house should have their personal toilet. Also, it focused on reducing plastic waste, littering waste here and there mostly in cities and also ensured mass recycle of non-biodegradable waste. This drive accelerated sanitation and also ensured the healthy growth of the second largest population of the world. Its main agenda was to make India a clean nation and attain new perks of health and hygiene. This was a massive drive by the government.
