Short essay on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Drive

Introduction:- Mahatma Gandhi once said, “sanitation is more important than independence”. Gandhiji wanted Indians to lead a clean and hygienic life. But, unfortunately, Indians continued leading an unhygienic lifestyle even after six decades since independence. In order to materialise Gandhiji’s dream of a clean India, the ruling BJP took the decisive step of launching a cleanliness drive termed Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, also known as Clean India Drive.

About the drive/campaign:-
It was inaugurated on 2nd October in 2014 (the 145th birth anniversary of Gandhiji) by the Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Rajghat, New Delhi. The aims of this drive are — (i) to discourage defection on the open, (ii) to stop manual scavenging, (iii) to install sanitary toilets, (iv) to recycle or dispose waste materials, and (v) to encourage private enterprises for cleanliness.

Need for this drive:-
The involvement of private enterprises in this drive would generate employment and increase GDP growth. It will reduce mortality rate and health-related expenses. It will also attach tourists to India.

Conclusion:-
The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Drive is the biggest ever cleanliness drive in India. It will be a success only if we Indians cooperate wholeheartedly with the government in this drive. We must remember the saying, “Cleanliness is next to godliness”.
