Modi has been upset over the slow progress of the scheme, whose deadline was set on October 2nd, 2019.The central got further asked the states that they have to inform the govt at centre that whether they are slow to release the fund for that particular scheme, which to be done by the Mission Directors. 

Expressing dissatisfaction over the slow pace move of Swachh Bharat Mission, PM told states, “Your response is extremely critical in Swachh Bharat movement, and you are requested to share the substantial instances from your state.  PM also in last month asked the directed secretaries to do a fearless mid-term critique of the government’s policies in the past two and a half year.

TIWN reported recently that Tripura has not built a single toilet out of its target of 63398 toilets in two years.  Moreover, in Tripura the Swachh Bharat Mission has remained just a fashion which are done during few programmes and then forgotten, but from the Govt there is no initiative.In this way Tripura, not only in 2019, but can never become a clean state.

Tripura had received Rs. 15.39 crore under Swachh Bharat Mission  and it was said that total of 475 panchayat villages would be soon covered with 100 per cent sanitation facilities during the first phase.

Minister Ratan Bhowmik himself said that the entire project in being implemented under the Swachh Bharat Mission. This time the state government has targeted the individuals to be covered with the 100 per cent sanitation, he said.

Besides, all the defunct category sanitation or the toilets would be listed out with the central government.

The entire project would be completed by 2 years. This year at least 475 panchayat villages would be covered with 100 per cent sanitation. Total six districts of the state has been targeted comprising of Dhalai, North, South, Unakoti, Khowai and West, Bhowmik said.

He also said, “The Swachh Bharat Mission would take up the project work only for the APL categories whereas the BPL categories would be covered up with the work to be taken up by the REGA.”

But the reality which roles Tripura is just horrible. From water discharging machine to everything the state is facing acute garbage, unhygienic condition all over. In this situation if necessary step is not taken, then it will be heavy for the Govt here, said sources.
