  • Mahatma Gandhiji’s campaign was – British leave India. We are campaigning – clear the dirt India.

  • There’s a lot of focus on cleanliness in Northeast India. There’s a tradition of cleanliness in the region.

  • Last year all the villages in the country declared themselves open defecation free, Cleanliness champions like you are going to play a very big role to take this success forward.

  • From city to village, from school to home, you can show the way to ensure cleanliness.

  • Today is a very historic day. It is a major contributor to the independence of the country.

  • On this day, in 1942, a huge mass movement for freedom – British ‘Quit India’ – started under Gandhiji’s leadership.

  • In this center, our journey of Swachhagraha with the inspiration of Satyagraha is depicted through modern technology. I was also seeing that the sanitation robot is very popular among the children who come here.

  • Swachh Bharat Abhiyan has boosted the self-confidence of our countrymen. But its biggest benefit is visible in the life of the poor of the country.

  • The is a growth in the awareness among children about personal and social hygiene, we are also getting a huge benefit in the fight against Corona. Imagine, what would have happened if an epidemic like Corona had come before 2014.

  • The evils that make the country weak should leave India, what else could be better than this. With this thinking, a comprehensive Quit India campaign has been going on in the country for the last 6 years.

  • Poverty – Quit India
  • Compulsion of open defecation – leave India
  • Compulsion to walk for water – Quit India
  • Corruption – Quit India

  • All these resolutions of Quit India are in keeping with the spirit of Swaraj to Suraj.

  • Come, start a week long campaign in the country from today till 15 August i.e. Independence Day.

  • A week in Swaraj’s honor i.e. ‘Quit India Dirt, Week’.
