On the third anniversary of Swachh Bharat mission on Gandhi’s birth anniversary PM Narendra Modi said “We cannot achieve the target of Swachh Bharat mission even if 1,000 Mahatma Gandhis, one lakh Narendra Modis, chief ministers and all governments come together. We can achieve it only when all 125 crore countrymen come together,” The Swachh Bharat mission aims to make India open defecation free by Gandhiji’s 150th birth anniversary in 2019.
The PM also asked people to not discourage those who were practicing cleanliness if the government was telling them to do so.
“There are several other issues to criticise Modi. (Some) people will give you thousand issues to do so…But do not discourage those who are maintaining cleanliness,” he added.
