Government working to realise Bapu's vision on sanitation: Nirmala Sitharaman
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said the Narendra Modi government believed in Mahatma Gandhis vision on sanitation and was working to realise it. 
"Gandhi ji said that sanitation is more important than independence. The government believes in this vision of Bapu," she said.

Ms Sitharaman said even after 72 years of Independence and despite many awareness programmes about sanitation and personal cleanliness launched by earlier governments, not much progress could be achieved. 
"Therefore, in order to fulfill dream of Mahatma Gandhi to make India clean, Swachh Bharat Mission was introduced," she said.
