PM said, "The 'Swachh Bharat Mission' is about both 'Vyavastha' (systems) and 'Vichar' (thought process and mindset)".

He also said that the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan movement has become a people's movement due to the 'Siddhi' of Swachhagrahi.

"India faces challenges but that does not mean we run away from them. We will face them and work to overcome them," he said.

PM further said that a positive spirit of competition has been created due to Swachh Bharat Mission, adding " We see this in the cleanliness rankings, how organisations are working on cleanliness."

He congratulated all those who supported and took part in the 'Swachhata Hi Seva' movement.

"I keep saying- this is the start. We should continue the momentum built by the movement," he added.
