In 2014, when Mr. Narendra Modi took oath as India’s Prime Minister, one of his first few initiative was ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’. He appealed to the people of India to keep the country clean and hygienic and the opposition parties laughed it off as a ‘publicly stunt’.

But this didn’t stop PM Modi and he kept urging people in every rallies and public speeches. He promised the women of villages in India that he will built toilets for them and also make more public toilets so that people don’t urinate on the roads, causing more harm to the hygiene and environment.
