New Delhi: Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi over his comments against 'Swachh Bharat' campaign, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar today 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.
Speaking at an event to mark 125th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru yesterday, Gandhi took a dig at Modi over the
"Swachchta Abhiyan" saying "photo opportunities" are galore.
"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.
