People who voted for him have a long list of his achievements. Figuring definitely in the list is his mandate for a clean India. Getting toilets built across the nation is one thing; what has also been felt is the increase in awareness among the facility owners and sectors like hospitality, healthcare & other areas like airports, transit stations, etc., to keep up high standards of maintenance.
