Speaking on his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’, Modi congratulated government officials from Harda district in Madhya Pradesh for their ‘Mallyudh’ (a sanitation programme).

“They have given a new meaning to ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan’. A brother gifting his sister a toilet on ‘Raksha Bandhan’, and the one who does so becoming ‘brother number one’ has given a new direction to the (cleanliness) mission,” he said.

Modi also appreciated the efforts of villagers in Rajanand district of Chhattisgarh.

“In Kresha village n Rajanand, people have built toilets. Now nobody goes out for defecation,” he said, adding he was very happy for the changes taking place.
