Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today launched Swachh Survekshan or Sanitation Survey 2017 of 500 cities in New Delhi.
People from Dhanbad and Mysore shared their success stories through video conferencing and also kept forth their demands in front of the minister.
Venkaiah Naidu launched Guide Book, Idea Book and MSW Manual on the occasion.
The main objective of Swach Survekshan is not to point out shortcomings but to suggest ways to improve the state of cleanliness in the particular area.
During the function, the minister also launched “self assessment tool” for city progress and “Swachh Survekshan-2017 short films” to create awareness on cleanliness.
Speaking on this occasion, Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu has said that there is a need to make Swachh Bharat Andolon a Jan Andolon and not a government programme.
