SwachhBharat-LogoTo fulfil Gandhi’s dream of clean and healthy India, Narendra Modi launched Swachh Bharat, the biggest ever mass movement since Independence on October 2, Gandhi Jayanti. Integrating a billion Indians to create a Clean India under the Swachh Bharat Mission, Modi first himself joined the Clean India Campaign at Mandir Marg Police Station in Delhi and then urge every Indian to “Come, devote time for a Clean India.”

“In continuation of what it has been doing for the past one decade, remaining committed towards achieving ‘Clean India’, the Clean India Journal team does take the pledge for propagating the message of Swachh Bharat Mission in the entire country.”

“I am very confident about the success of #SwachhBharat movement. The government is doing every bit to ensure the success of this five year movement. We expect people too, to join the movement with same seriousness.”

GM Hemat Kumar“We can arrange cleaning four times, five times a day, but not everytime everyminute. It’s the passengers/commuters who must have to think whether they want to be in a dirty place or in a clean place. To eat a chocolate you have to go to a shop to buy, you have to unwrap it. If so much you do just to eat a chocolate; why can’t you put the wrapper in a bin, placed just a few meters ahead. This attitude “I will litter and you will clean” is sickening. Today is the day to spread this message.”

“I am not only inspecting but also participating actively in the event, be it cleaning my home, colony or at Churchgate.”

– Hemant Kumar, GM-Western Railways

DRM Shailendra Kumar2“Railways is nations’ pride. It’s a public property. Hence cleaning at Railways can’t be achieved until and unless people participate. Today we have called all our 13 lakh employees. NGOs and schools too have joined with us. The whole idea is to involve everyone as much as we can. You can see that people are holding banners to educate and appeal others not to litter. Once people get aware of the things, only then cleanliness will improve.”

– Shaillendra Kumar, DRM-BCT, Western Railways


Javed-Akhtar-cleans-Mumbai-central-station2“I suspect when you say you love your country. You can’t keep your own locality clean. You litter here and there. My dear, the country doesn’t reside in air. The road that connects your home, the railways that helps you complete your journey, the school where you study, the people that live around you…this is your country. Don’t think about others, just keep the part of the country that you have got in your share – your land, home and locality – clean. The country will get cleaned itself.”

– Javed Akhtar, popular Writer

Sachin Tendulkar2

“I along with my friends will also lend our hand towards cleanliness and will try and keep India as clean as possible.”

– Sachin Player, Cricket Icon and a Rajya Sabha Member

“We have put up banners at the ticket counters and station areas. Announcements are on as a reminder against littering and the penalties related to it.”

Carried out at Hutatma Park, Kolhapur, Rotaractors and Rotarians gathered at the spot at 7am, and started to clean the premises, using brooms and wire brushes. The two old bridges near the park were cleaned, and painted. Also the entry gate of the park and the steps of the park were also cleaned, and painted.”
