Banega Swachh India Cleanathon: Clean Up Drives Across India

As part of the 12-hour Banega Swachh India Cleanathon, clean up drives are being organized in many cities across India, including a clean-up of the Yamuna at Kudsia Ghat in Delhi, at Assi Ghat in Varanasi, and at Marina beach in Chennai.

Using art as a medium, volunteers at Varanasi's Assi Ghat express the need to maintain cleanliness in the country.

About 400-500 volunteers have taken a step towards #SwachhIndia by pledging to clean the banks of river Yamuna in Delhi. They hope their efforts won't go in vain and people will refrain from littering the banks post the cleanliness-drive.

Volunteers in Delhi dedicate their time to clean Yamuna.

As part of the Banega Swachh India campaign, volunteers pledge to clean up 1.5 kms of Nochi Kuppam, a part of Marina beach.

Amitabh Bachchan applauded their effort, and said: "We shouldn't wait for acknowledgement and just go out and do what needs to be done".

Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation has adopted 45 railway stations all over India on a request from the Railway Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhu as part of the 'Swachh Rail - Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'. During the Cleanathon, almost 500 volunteers gathered to clean up the Dadar Station in Mumbai.
