Nirmala Sitharaman, while presenting budget 2019 said, “9.6 crore toilets have been constructed since Oct 2, 2014. More than 5.6 lakh villages have become open defecation free. We have to build on this success. I propose to expand the Swachh Bharat mission to undertake sustainable solid waste management in every village”.
Swachh Bharat mission was launched on 2 October 2014 as a tribute to father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi. It was a massive initiative to clean India. Swachh Bharat is a noble mission and Prime Minister has appealed fellow Indians to devote at least 100 hours every year towards the cause of cleanliness. Swachh Bharat Mission is a time-bound project to be completed before 2nd Oct 2019.
But as the deadline of the mission is just 3 months far and there is still a lot to do in the field, there are possibilities of the deadline being extended.
