For the last year, we have been witnessing how the country (has been celebrating) the ‘Amrit Mahotsav’. It all began with Dandi Yatra in 2021. The people held programs in every district, every corner, of India to enlarge the scope of goals of the ‘Amrit Mahotsav’ of Independence. This was perhaps for the first time in history that such a huge and comprehensive festival for a single purpose was celebrated. An attempt was made in every corner of India to remember all those great men who did not find mention in history for some reasons or who were forgotten. Today, the nation sought out all such heroes and great men, selfless, brave men from every corner of the country and paid tributes to them. It was an opportunity to pay tributes to all these great men during the ‘Amrit Mahotsav’.
Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is a celebration of our achievements till date. As it makes way for Azadi Ka Amrit Kal; the nation gears up for charting new goals for a new India@100. Our past accomplishments will enthuse in us a new vigour to march confidently towards the path of duty laid by the Hon’ble PM Modi ji.
ACHIEVEMENTS GALORE: MAKING GREAT RESOLUTIONS & IMPLEMENTING THEM
Under the quintessential leadership of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Modi ji, India has been setting new benchmarks of success in different spheres and has been setting an example for other countries to follow its lead.
The entire country embraced the agenda of cleanliness propagated by the Hon’ble PM Modi ji. Everyone moved towards cleanliness as per his/her capacity and there is now antipathy towards filthiness. We have adopted cleanliness, and will continue marching on this path in future as well. To accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put the focus on sanitation, the Prime Minister of India had launched the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2nd October 2014. Under the mission, all villages, Gram Panchayats, Districts, States and Union Territories in India declared themselves “open-defecation free” (ODF) by 2 October 2019, the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by constructing over 100 million toilets in rural India. To ensure that the open defecation free behaviours are sustained, no one is left behind, and that solid and liquid waste management facilities are accessible, the Mission is moving towards the next Phase II of SBMG i.e. ODF Plus. ODF Plus activities under Phase II of Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen) will reinforce ODF behaviours and focus on providing interventions for the safe management of solid and liquid waste in villages.
