The want of a cleaner society.It has been 4 years since the Modi government had promised to complete Gandhi's dream of living in a clean society in our country. Funds have been raised all through this time for the 'Swatch Bharat Abhiyan' and the government claims that 87% of their target that was set for setting up toilets in the urban areas has been achieved. They also claim that 94% of the houses in the rural areas have an individual household latrine. But there is a great need of close audits to these outcomes as all the statistics of other independent surveys are not even close to the numbers provided by the government when it comes to Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and so on.
It does not look like the government has properly utilised the time in carrying out the movement and the lack of proper infrastructure and planning is not helping at all. The government should also try to take care of the disposal of waste in both the rural and urban areas. The dream of having a clean society seems quite far from our reach right now.
