No holiday on October 2; Government employees to take cleanliness pledge ... PM Narendra Modi

For the first time in the history of India, Gandhi Jayanti will not be a holiday for government staff who will have to report to work to take the 'Swachch Shapath'.

Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth, on September 20, directed all central government secretaries to ensure that every employee takes the pledge on October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The text of the pledge will soon be sent to all the departments.

Besides this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken several steps to implement one of the biggest public campaigns for cleanliness. The minutes of meeting between Modi and 20 secretaries reveals that a new law may be enforced to ensure cleanliness. The prime minister has asked the law ministry to amend existing laws or to analyse whether a new Act is required to act against those who litter.

The prime minister also directed the Finance Ministry to explore a taxation policy to keep a check on those who pollute.

According to the minutes of meetings, Modi was of the opinion that dairies and cattle are major sources of garbage and pollution in urban areas and towns.

Hence, he directed the animal husbandry department to consider setting up of cattle hostels. The prime minister asked his sub-ordinates to engage Bollywood celebrities in a big way to campaign for his 'Swachcha Bharat' mission.

Famous poets and singers should also be a part of the nationwide campaign that will begin on September 25, the prime minister said.

A marathon will be organised by the sports ministry to create awareness about the cleanliness drive in every city with a population of over one lakh.

The Prime Minister further suggested the Department of School and Education to ensure questions on cleanliness in examinations.

Meanwhile, prime minister Modi noted that he had undertaken plans to cleanse the political system and the administration machinery. "Now is the time to cleanse the nation. I want each one of you to contribute in every possible way. It is our vision to present a clean India to the outside world," he asserted.

Coming down heavily on the banking system, Modi wondered whether the banks served the purpose they were set up for. "We need inclusive growth. Our Jan Dhan sceheme will help us achieve it," he said.
