AGARTALA, April 30 (TIWN): Tripura Bharat Skouts and Guides organized Swacch Bharat Abhiyan at Badharghat area on Thursday. Sports Minister Shahid Choudhury along with the Head Master of Sports School, Deputy Director and Joint Director of Sports Department with 100 students of Tripura Bharat Skouts and Guides with the students of Sports School attended the Abhiyan and make the locals of the area aware of cleanliness.

Talking to TIWN, one of the members of the organization told that actually some students of Tripura Bharat Skouts and Guides had attended a 5days camp at Jogendra Nagar area for selection camp. The camp had ended last night. But due to the transport operators strike, it was not possible for the students to reach home.

Therefore the organization had decided to make the valuable use of the day with some noble causes and organized Swacch Bharat Abhiyan. It is to be mention that taking forward Prime Minister Narendra Modi's initiative to rid the country of litter and rubbish, the organization had taken such an initiative. Bharat or Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Campaign Clean India) is a national level campaign by the Government of India covering 4041 statutory towns to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country. This campaign was officially launched on 2 October 2014 at Rajghat, New Delhi, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself wielded broom and cleaned a road.

The launch of the mission comes in the wake of a perception about Indian cities not being very clean. A number of people in rural areas still do not have access to toilets. Some schools in the rural areas also do not have toilets.

 According to Census 2011, only 32.70 percent of rural households had access to toilets. According to a UN report released this year, India continues to have the largest number of people in the world defecating in the open.
