PM Modi speaks at the launch of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

  • Mahatma Gandhi gave us the message quit India, clean India.
  • Bapu's dream of a clean India is still unfulfilled.
  • Swachh Bharat campaign logo is not just a logo. It is as if Gandhiji is watching us, asking as when will we clean India.
  • I would like to congratulate those who worked for this programme earlier. They must have been in different forms and with different names but the initiative was to ensure a clean India.
  • The Prime Minister is a son of India first and later the Prime Minister.
  • This government is not trying to take credit for the Clean India campaign. I know there will be criticism in a few days - look what happened? But I have come prepared to face that.
  • Is cleaning just the job of a sweeper? Is it not our duty too? Do citizens have no role in this? We have to change this mindset.
  • We reached Mars. No PM or minister went. It was the people who did it, our scientists who did it. So can't we create a 'Clean India'.
  • If Indians can reach Mars then can't Indians go and clean our streets and roads?
  • India can do it, the people of India can do it.
  • This is a very difficult mission, but by 2019 we should accomplish it.
  • It will be a tribute to Gandhiji on his 150th birth anniversary.
  • If this is politicized or seen as a photo-op then we will not be doing justice to this mission.
  • I am sure we will all come together and fulfill this mission.
  • This is a a job for 125 crore people and I say this 125 crore times. It isn't a job for Modi or the government alone.
  • Gandhi didn't clean every village, but his commitment inspired millions to take up the task.
  • Government and ministers can't do it alone, it is 'jan samanya ka' job.
  • I have invited nine people and asked them to come to public places and work towards a Clean India. I ask them to invite 9 more people.
  • I have invited Mridula Sinha ji, Sachin Tendulkar, Baba Ramdev, Kamal Haasan, Shashi Tharoor, Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan and asked them to invite nine others.
  • This work is the responsibility of the people of India. It is not the work of ministers or NGOs alone, but of the common man.
  • Quit India was successful as the entire country was a part of that movement, I would ask 125 crore people to join this campaign to make India a clean place.
  • Don't trust me or my government, trust the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.
  • The enthusiasm I am seeing on my social media pages for this campaign is heartening.
  • We should pledge today to make it a clean India - 'I will not litter or allow anyone to litter'.
  • When we go abroad we see how clean those countries are, we don't see them spitting around or throwing waste anywhere they wish to. Those places are clean because that is their dedication to cleanliness.
