Meanwhile, the whole countrymen will have to administer two oaths on this day.
“I will remain committed towards cleanliness and devote time for this… I will neither litter nor let others litter”, is one of the two oaths”.
The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation has prepared the pledge.
The pledge goes, “I take this pledge that I will remain committed towards cleanliness and devote time for this. I will devote 100 hours per year — that is two hours per week — to voluntary work for cleanliness. I will neither litter nor let others litter.
“I will initiate the quest for cleanliness with myself, my family, my locality, my village and my work place. I believe that the countries of the world that appear clean are so because their citizens don’t indulge in littering nor do they allow it to happen.
“With this firm belief, I will propagate the message of Swachh Bharat Mission in villages and towns”.
