New Delhi: Talking at Mahatma Gandhi’s 148th birth anniversary in Delhi, Narendra Modi asked citizens for increased participation to help realise the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan goals.
Point to be noted here is that the Clean India Mission is one of the most widely promoted programmes of the Modi-led NDA government.
One of the most pivotal factor to note is that the program is divided into Swachh Bharat Urban (SBM-U) and Swachh Bharat Gramin (SBM-G). The urban part of the program is handled by the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs as the nodal ministry. On the other hand, the rural part is under the Union Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.
Under SBM-U, the government had helped construction of 3,074,229 individual toilets and 226,274 public and community toilets.
