Swachh Bharat – Clean India

swachh bharat - clean india


Mahatma Gandhi, the father of India believed in cleanliness. People around him were always inspired by his clean hygiene habits, he even believed “Cleanliness is Godliness”. But yet we Indians have failed to follow the footsteps of the father of the Nation and have made India one of the dirtiest countries in the world. But thanks to the new Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, who is taking a step forward in cleaning India by launching a nationwide campaign called “Swachh Bharat” (Clean India). The new PM said “If 1.25 crore Indians decide to clean their country, then there’s no power in the world that could stop us”.

The Swachh Bharath app is in response to the PM’s mission to clean India. The app depends majorly on the social network, Twitter. It lets you tweet pictures and location of the dirty public places you find around you directly to the @pmoindia twitter handle with #swachhbharat hashtag.

It’s 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi in 2019, and a clean India is the best gift we can give to the man who gave freedom to this country. Join the revolution, download the Swachh Bharat app and give your support to help clean India.

The Swachh Bharat app is not officially supported by the Government of India.
