How successful is the Clean India Campaign
By Ankita Mitra
The Clean India Campaign was officially launched on 2 October 2014 by the BJP government. The campaign is said to be India's biggest ever cleanliness drive. However, after almost two years, one can clearly see that India is not really as clean as it should be. The main reason why the campaign hasn’t been fully successful is lack of strict rules or heavy penalties. Another reason for the failure of the campaign is that people are not properly educated or informed about the necessary of cleanliness. Awareness is not only necessary at ground levels, but also at levels where people are educated but choose to litter around. More and more companies need to come together and contribute to the campaign. In addition, it is important that students actively practice cleanliness in their homes and locality. They can teach their families the importance of the campaign and the families in turn can spread the word.
Our country will be garbage free only if its citizens stand united against the vice of littering.
