Swachh Bharat Abhiyan By Abhishek Singh
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is started by the Government to convert India into a Clean India. Clean India was a dream seen by Mahatma Gandhi regarding which he said that "Sanitation Is More Important Than Independence". During his time, he was well aware of the poor and dirty condition of the country that's why he made various efforts to make his dream come true,Â however he could not succeed in doing so.Â As he dreamt of clean India he said that "Both Cleanliness and Sanitation Are Integral Part Of Healthy, Peaceful Living".Unfortunately India is not able to maintain its cleanliness and sanitation even after 71 years of Independence. According to the statistics it has been seen that only few percentage of people of the total population have access to Toilets. So,Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, is a program run by the government to seriously work to fulfill the vision of the Father Of Nation "Bapu" by calling the people from all walks of life to make it successful.
