Swachh Bharat Abhiyan: How far successful?

Dear Editor,

The union govt launched “at swachh Bharat Abhyan” in the year 2014 with a view to keep India neat and clean. The VVIPs, VIPs, politicians in power, the sports personalities the film industry people and all those who matters in the society got involved holding brooms in their hands to support government’s drive for cleanliness.

A Survey conducted by national newspaper revealed that there is some achievement but 82% of the participants in the survey were either opted for no change or can’t say to the quarry “has availability of public toilets improved in 3 years, 77% were unfavourable to the quarry “have municipalities become more responsive to cleanliness, 68% “has civic sense improved in last 3 years, 84% opined for no change or can’t say for “are civic bodies driving civic sense awareness and initiatives on ground whileas 90% favoured the quarry “do you frequently observe plastic, hazardous or debris dumped at designated places’.

Like more loyal than the kind, a Deputy Commissioner has been indicted by the Punjab and Haryana High Court for his raids against the defecating in the open and posting their pictures on Facebook. The DC has to offer unconditional apology before the High Court after the court sought action against him. The media reports reveals further that just 25% of the garbage gets treated and rest 75% of 1.7 lakh tonnes of municipal waste (garbage) that Indian cities and towns generate daily goes to landfill sticks sites or dumping yards untreated.

The civic bodies cover only 44,650 out of 81,000 municipal wards through door-to-door collection scheme. The inadequacy of mechanism to collect and transport garbage from urban homes to the dumping yards is a major lacuna and high lights the need for smarter integration of swachh Bharat in the urban renewal programmes like “AMRUTM”. There is reportedly no uniform mechanism for maintenance and sweeping and lifting of garbage across urban areas. So far 30.74 lakh household toilets have been reportedly built against the target of 65.82 lakh by October 2019.
