New Delhi, Nov 14: Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi over his comments against 'Swachh Bharat' campaign, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi intended to make the mission a weapon of change.
"We have to change the habits and mindset of people. When the country is clean, the mind also is clean. This is also a sort of beginning of the fight against corruption. One can do nothing if Rahul Gandhi does not understand this," Javadekar told reporters here.
"The Prime Minister is making Swacch Bharat campaign a weapon for change in the country. The contours of that change is completely ready. We have to clean the air, water, save energy and water and also ensure proper solid waste management and sewage treatment," he said.
"These days, the foundation of love and brotherhood is being demolished. On the one hand houses are being painted and roads are being cleaned. Photo opportunities are happening.
"Snaps are being taken. On the other hand, poison is being spread. The very foundations are being weakened," Gandhi had said during his speech.
Heavily criticizing the Prime Minister, Congress vice president on Thursday said that ‘angry people were running the country.'
Rahul further said, "Today, the love on the basis of which this country is run is being destroyed. On one hand they clean roads in photo ops and on the other hand they are spreading poison."
