In a nation like India, where the public don’t forget to litter on the streets more than once in a day it’s a wonder why we don’t have more campaigns like these integrated on a national level.
The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is the first ever national level campaign that was initiated on the 2nd of October by the Government of India. This campaign started off to a great beginning where in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself wielded a broom and started cleaning roads, becoming an inspiration for all! On the very same day Modi also addressed all the citizens of India asking them to join this campaign.
This campaign is one of India’s biggest cleanliness drive and & around 3 million government employees and students of colleges and schools joined this initiative.
So often we just pass by the real heroes of Mumbai, aka the BMC helpers who clean the roads on a daily basis. So for once it’s our turn to step into their shoes and know what it’s like to keep Mumbai clean. As a citizen of this vast nation, we hope that the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan continues for the years to come….
