“Clean India Mission”
Respected Principal, Vice Principal, Teachers and My Dear Students – Warm Greetings to all of you! I would like to deliver a short speech on Clean India Mission or Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in order that more and more people become aware of it and start observing cleanliness in his/her surroundings and also encourage others to do the same. Clean India Campaign or what has become the catch phrase for all, i.e. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, is one of the most awarded projects kick started by the Prime Minister of India – Shri Narendra Modi Ji. It was on 2nd October, i.e. the day of Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti, in the year 2014 that he made an official announcement of this special campaign. This is indeed one-of-itskind campaign which drew attention of millions of people and received recognition at a national level. The driving aim behind this campaign was of course to make every region of India, be it rural or urban, Open Defecation Free. Besides this, the aim of this prestigious campaign was to encourage the habit of cleanliness and maintenance of hygiene at all public and private places – whether they are streets, roads, offices, homes or public infrastructure across the country. The best aspect of this campaign is to lay stress on cleanliness of public toilets in all colleges, schools as well as public places. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is needless to say one of the biggest sanitation and cleanliness campaigns being run on a national scale and one of the best parts worth sharing is that over three million public personnel, including school as well as college students came forward to become a part of this campaign. The chief goal of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is to clean our country’s 4,041 towns and cities with a budget of 1.96 lakh crore, which nearly comes down to $31 billion.
That’s all I have to say! Thank You!
