Seeking to convert "Swachh Bharat Mission" into a "Jan Andolan", Urban Development Ministry has facilitated an online platform to enable the citizens network with each other to collectively take up cleanliness activities.
In this regard, the Ministry is taking the help of 'LocalCircles', a community social media platform, said a senior Ministry official.
A national circle, 'Swachh Bharat', has been launched and 1,70,000 citizens have already joined this circle.
This social media platform enables citizens to easily come together, exchange ideas on cleanliness, take up appropriate cleanliness activities in their neighborhoods, share pictures of collective efforts, engage with elected representatives and take the cleanliness campaign forward.
The National Circle 'Swachh Bharat' enables participants to know about the best practices for adoption.
Further, it also enables considered and collective inputs to the implementing agencies on a regular basis on issues like garbage collection and disposal, promotion of civic sense and interventions, if any, required from the concerned agencies.
