Besides making the above request, the prime minister also spoke of the progress in his two key initiatives – Clean India and the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme.
Referring to his Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, PM Modi said:
“Lately, there have been lots of news reports concerning the Swachhta Abhiyan. I read something recently. In a village in MP, an old mason got something done which piqued the newspaper’s interest. He worked without pay and built over 100 toilets.”
The prime minister also spoke about the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme which sends a person’s LPG subsidy directly to the his/her account and how it has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.
