New Delhi: In nearly 3 years of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, nearly 5 crore toilets have been constructed, 5 states, 2 lakh villages have achieved the status of open defecation free (ODF). A lot has been achieved, but, the road to fulfilling the goals of Swachh Bharat is still long way away. At this time the country needs all its citizens to turn Swachh warriors, as the government alone cannot achieve the target of the entire country going ODF by 2019. To mobilise public support and spread awareness, the government recently started a nationwide campaign – Swachh Sankalp se Swachh Siddhi. This countrywide campaign seeks to educate people about the importance of Swachhta and encourage mass involvement in Swachh Bharat Mission by holding Film, Essay and Painting competitions that are open for all to participate in. The competitions are being organised by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

To support this initiative of the government, Amitabh Bachchan who has been a campaign ambassador for the Swachh campaign for a while now, urged all his fans to come forward and do their bit towards creating a Swachh India.
