PM Modi’s Swachh Bharat Mission Finds Support In China As Xi Jinping Starts A ‘Toilet Revolution’ In Villages

Published on 30 November, 2017 at 4:28 pm By

Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) was launched by PM Modi on October 2, 2014 with the objective to eradicate open defecation by 2019, the year that marks the 150th birth anniversary of Gandhiji, who wanted to make sanitation a priority in the country. The program aimed at building more toilets, end the open defecation, and effectively manage the waste products across the nation. The primary objective of SBM is to improve the quality of life among the people by promoting the cleanliness, and motivating the communities to adopt the sanitation practices.

The programme has so far received more than 1 billion yuan of funding from the central government and over 20 billion yuan from local governments.

Li said most of the top-rated tourist attractions in the country had fixed their toilets and the goal now was to improve the conditions of toilets elsewhere.
