Indians must embrace cleanliness: Rijiju

New Delhi: Minister of State For Home Kiren Rijiju on Monday said people in India need to embrace cleanliness and discipline.

“Cleanliness is intrinsic to societies in many countries. But in our country cleanliness, discipline and orderliness leaves much to be desired,” the minister said here.

“Overcrowding and high population density cannot be an excuse to filthy living. What is required is a change in attitude in each person’s personality,” he said.

Rijiju made the remarks while flagging off the ‘Swachh Bharat, Swachh Himalaya’ campaign of the Border Security Force (BSF).

The October 12-November 23 campaign includes a cycling expedition, white water rafting and trek to Garhwal Himalayas during which team members will remove garbage and waste materials from the glaciers.

Rijiju, while lauding the BSF for undertaking the campaign as a part of its Golden Jubilee expedition, said: “Vigorous cleanliness campaigns need to be conducted before cleanliness becomes a way of life for us all.”
