President Ram Nath Kovind will launch “Swachhta Hi Seva” (Cleanliness service) sanitation campaign on Tuesday in Kanpur.
In a similar letter written to the Presidents of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) and Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICOAI), the Minister of State for Corporate Affairs, Shri P.P. Chaudhary has sought their cooperation and participation of their members and students in “Swachhta Hi Seva” campaign.
The campaign, to highlight the Narendra Modi government’s flagship cleanliness initiative Swachh Bharat Mission, will be launched from Ishwari Ganj village near here, an official spokesman said.
“Today, our country is fighting a decisive battle against uncleanliness”.
Before launching of this campaign, the President addressed the people out there and said India is on a war for Healthy and clean India.
Acharya also urged the people of the State to keep their surroundings and colonies clean.
“We should make united efforts for cleanliness”.
On September 25, a Sarvatra Swachhta programme has been planned, which would include large-scale cleaning of hospitals, parks, statues, bus stops, railway stations, ponds and public toilets across the country.
“Cleaning is not only the responsibility of sanitation workers. Ensuring cleanliness will be the true tribute to Mahatma Gandhi“, he said, adding diseases, including mental illness, can happen due to unclean atmosphere.
All the Union Ministers are expected to voluntarily take part in it and encourage others in their ministries to contribute towards cleanliness.
Other programmes planned under the “Swachhta Hi Seva” programme include activities such as “shauchalaya nirman” (toilet construction) and “shramdaan” by not just citizens, but also panchayats, municipal bodies, youth, defence personnel, women and children, on September 24.
Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanth will also be present at the programme.
